There are two wildfires present in Boulder County north of the city of Boulder. The CalWood fire is 76% contained and the Lefthand Canyon Fire is, we’re happy to report, 100% contained.
The city of Boulder is not in imminent danger. A large snowfall on Sunday helped the efforts and today the air quality is rated as good. Visitors to Boulder will probably not see evidence of the fires. Evacuation orders in the county have been lifted and almost all of the roads and trails have reopened. The emergency operations support team has demobilized.
Our thoughts are with our Boulder County friends and neighbors who are affected by these fires.
Things are a little different than usual in Boulder, as you might imagine.
Here's what's open and what's not as our town responds to COVID-19.
