What has stayed the same in the time of COVID-19?

- The views, mountains, trails, and water are still as amazing as they always have been, and we are still all about getting out there and enjoying them.
- Frisco Main Street is still charming, inviting, and full of unique local businesses, and Summit Boulevard is still the ideal place to stock up on provisions.
What has changed?
- How businesses can operate and how we have events and celebrate have needed to change in order to respect everyone’s health by following the guidance and public health orders from Summit Public Health and the State of Colorado.
- You will see a very significant commitment to your health from all Frisco businesses when you visit. Below is the quickest possible summary of some things you should expect to experience in Frisco and Summit County.
Top 9 Things You Should Know About Visiting Frisco & Summit County
- We’ve worked hard to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we continue that tough work so you can come here and feel safe while surrounded by the love of this town and our mountains.
- Public health orders are continuously changing so we will make sure to update this page often.
- The Frisco Bay Marina, the bike park, the skate park, disc golf course, and miles of dirt and paved rec paths are open. Boy do we need that.
- Three blocks of Frisco Main Street have been transformed into the Frisco Pedestrian Promenade, which is an open air shopping and dining experience in a pedestrian and bike only zone. This is a great chance to physically distance and still linger on Frisco Main Street.
- Face masks/coverings are REQUIRED in public spaces in all of Summit County (this includes Frisco) per Summit Public Health Orders. We know this may not be the case where you are from, and we know it is an adjustment but we will need you to respect this requirement if you choose to visit this area. We are all sporting some seriously on trend face coverings, which range from buffs to bandanas to polka dot masks so we don’t spew spittle and get you sick (that got a little graphic- sorry). It’s a small price to pay for a big return- your health.
- Face coverings must be worn in any indoor public spaces and in outdoor locations where maintaining 6 feet of separation is not possible.
- Face coverings should cover the mouth and nose and can be fabric, non-medical masks. In fact, reserving medical grade masks for medical providers is a great idea.
- Restaurants are currently operating at reduced occupancy indoors to honor physical distancing requirements so reservations are highly recommended. Many Frisco restaurants have great patios already, and starting in mid-June, outdoor seating was expanded through the transformation of Main Street into a pedestrian space called the Frisco Pedestrian Promenade where open air dining and shopping are all the rage. More on restaurants below.
- Hotels, motels, and short term rentals are now open with beefed up safety and sanitation protocols. We strongly encourage you to contact your lodging provider for the most up to date information before arriving. More on lodging below.
- Events– Right now we are limited to gatherings of no more than 175 people so we are re-imagining events. Check out our Concerts “Not In the Park” Series, Solo Virtual Running Series, and Founder’s Celebration. Frisco is still all about supporting musicians and a good time!
And yes, the only parade we are having this 4th of July is with our family on the way to the backyard grill! Also, there will not be any 4th of July fireworks. But don’t despair, you can make this celebration of our independence into your best, most stress free, fun, and back to basics celebration, while using Frisco as your base camp. Check out some DIY July 4th suggestions here.
- Activity and tour availability is continuously changing, so we suggest reaching out to your activity provider for their most up-to-date availability and safety protocols. You can also drop us a line at TofInfo@townoffrisco.com or call 800-424-1554, and we’ll help you sort it out!

Top 4 Things to Know About Lodging
- As of June 1, all lodging opened in Frisco and all of Summit County with amped up cleaning and sanitation standards per Summit Public Health and the State of Colorado; this includes hotels and motels, as well as timeshare style properties and short-term vacation-style rentals, and privately owned residences.
- Summit Public Health recommends that lodging properties provide at least 72 hours between rentals. Please inquire directly with your lodging before arrival for more details.
- Guests, employees, vendors and suppliers will be required to wear masks or facial coverings in public/common areas indoors and anywhere outside where six feet of physical distancing can’t be maintained.

- The Frisco Peninsula/Adventure Park’s summer features, including the disc golf course, skate park, play climbing boulders, and bike park are open. And the Two Below Zero Chuck Wagon dinner rides are planning for a June 26 reopening. We all just need to respect physical distancing protocols: stay home if you are sick, keep six feet of distance from folks not in your household, wear a mask when you can’t maintain six feet distance outside or when going indoors to use a restroom, etc., and have some serious soul feeding fun.
- Parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, and picnic tables are open, and as many surfaces as possible will be disinfected each morning by the Town of Frisco. That said- be careful with high touch surfaces and wash and/or sanitize your hands frequently, and do your best to refrain from touching your face (it’s tough- we know). Also, respect physical distancing protocols- stay home if you are sick, six feet distance… you know the drill.
- The Frisco Bay Marina is open and renting motor boats and paddle sport equipment, and here are some good things to know about how they are taking your health seriously.

- All power boat group size maximums, which are currently 10 people maximum, will follow group size regulations in accordance with County and State Public Health Orders.
- Power boats and all paddle sport equipment will be thoroughly wiped down between each rental by Marina staff with disinfecting cleaner.
- All used personal flotation devises (PFDs) will be disinfected between each rental.
- There will be staggered rental start times between each group to allow minimal group interactions in the Marina office and on the docks.
- Boat ramp users must remain in their vehicles with their windows up throughout the boat inspection process, or wear face coverings and maintain a distance of six (6) feet from others if they need to exit their vehicle.
- Recreate responsibly
- Move on and find a new favorite spot if a parking lot, trailhead, park, beach, path… is too crowded for you to maintain physical distance and protect your health.
- Maintain six feet or more of distance from folks not in your household, and wear a mask if you can’t do that.
- Refrain from super risky outdoor adventures; this is the time to play it a bit safer (no base jumping this trip).
- US Forest Service campgrounds in the Frisco area are now open. Check here for the latest updates from the White River National Forest District office, and as usual, reservations may be made at Recreation.gov.
- Love every moment that you are outside and show kindness and caring in your every action.
The local Summit Public Health order encourages all Summit County residents, visitors, and workers to adopt the Five Commitments of Containment to prevent a resurgence of COVID-19 in Summit County:
- I will maintain six feet of physical distance from other individuals.
- I will wash my hands often and for at least 20 seconds.
- I will cover my face in public.
- I will stay home when I am sick.
- I will get tested immediately if I have COVID-19 symptoms.
