Mesa County 5-Star Business List

Follow the Mesa County 5-Star Program on Facebook to see local businesses featured!

Although Mesa County’s Free to Choose Resolution is in effect starting Friday, April 16, 2021, Mesa County 5-Star businesses are still operating under COVID-19 precautions.

The 5-Star Program is a joint Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) – Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce strategy to support local businesses that began in the summer of 2020. In the 5-Star Program, businesses are recognized for their efforts to protect staff, customers, and the community by implementing specific COVID-19 health and safety precautions. The program’s purpose has always been to give customers information as they choose which businesses to visit, and give businesses guidance on the prevention measures they wish to utilize. 

Click here to see a list of safety measures 5-Star businesses must implement.

If you would like to participate in this program, fill out this form.

Please note, while some of the businesses/agencies listed below have chosen to partake in the Mesa County 5-Star Program, some are subject to corporate, federal, or state regulations and must continue to follow COVID-19 restrictions set by their higher authority.

No Burn Advisory Through 8 p.m. on April 6 Due to Fire Safety Concerns

No Burn Advisory Through 8 p.m. on April 6 Due to Fire Safety Concerns

Mesa County Public Health has issued a no burn advisory through 8 p.m. on April 6 due to expected high winds. 

The National Weather Service forecast calls for breezy conditions with wind gusts up to 25 mph.

Conditions are not appropriate for burning. Instead of burning, consider these alternatives:

  • Take yard waste to the Mesa County Organic Materials composting facility at Mesa County Solid Waste, 3071 U.S. Hwy. 50. The facility accepts material for composting at no charge and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Wednesday- Saturday. For more information, call (970) 263-9319. 
    • Please note the Mesa County Landfill is required to close during periods of high winds. If you plan on visiting the Composting Facility on a windy day, please call 241-6846 prior to coming out to ensure the facility is open.
  • Compost leaves and grass clippings yourself. This can improve water retention in your yard or garden.
  • Rent or borrow a wood chipper for your tree and shrub trimmings. Chipped branches can also be good mulch.

The Spring Burn season in the City of Grand Junction ends April 30, Mesa County’s season goes through May 31.

For information on current air quality conditions and to learn if it’s OK to burn, visit our website.

Spring Burn Season Begins March 1

Spring Burn Season Begins March 1

With the support of local fire chiefs, on March 1, 2021, the Spring Burn Season will return. Last Spring, Mesa County’s Open Burn Season was suspended and ultimately canceled due to resource and air quality concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Fall of 2020 after a historic wildfire season, including the Pine Gulch Fire, a burn ban remained in effect due to significant wildfire risk canceling the Fall Open Burn Season.

Community members are encouraged to use Mesa County Public Health’s online system to obtain a permit. This online tool has been re-designed and is easier than ever to navigate and use. Your permit will be emailed to you right after check out.

  • Agricultural Burn Permits are issued with no fee. Within Grand Junction City Limits, agricultural burning is permitted during the designated spring and fall seasons. Outside of the City, agricultural burning is allowed year-round. Permit Holders should only burn when conditions are acceptable for burning.
  • Residential Burn Permits cost $25 and are valid during the designated spring and fall seasons of the calendar year. All proceeds from the permits support your local fire protection district.
  • If you purchased a Burn Permit last year, there is no charge for your permit this year. Please make sure to indicate your previous purchase on your application.
  • We encourage the use of our online system to minimize in-person interaction and to keep everyone safe during COVID-19. If you would like assistance obtaining a permit, please call our team at 970-248-6900. 

Once you have a permit, it’s important to monitor air quality, weather, and other safety alerts. Burn permits are not valid if there is a red flag warning, fire restriction, or a no burn advisory in place. Air quality information can be found on the Mesa County Public Health website. A re-designed Air Quality page makes tracking air quality conditions and advisories easy to access. 

Burn season runs through May 31 in Mesa County and April 30 in the City of Grand Junction.  Permits for everyone in the County (including those within city limits) are issued by Mesa County Public Health.

Open burning pollutes the air and poses a fire hazard. Consider alternatives, such as composting or wood chipping, if possible. The Mesa County Organic Materials Composting Facility at Mesa County Solid Waste, 3071 U.S. Hwy 50, accepts organic materials like leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs, hay, and straw free of charge from Mesa County residents. 

To view other alternatives to burning, and for additional information about burn permits, check out our Guide to Burning.

Mesa County Readies for Phase 1B.3 While Continuing to Prioritize Individuals 65 and Older

Mesa County Readies for Phase 1B.3 While Continuing to Prioritize Individuals 65 and Older

Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) continues our phased distribution plan for COVID-19 vaccine. Priority continues to be given to individuals age 65 and older, as the risk for severe outcomes is higher in this age group.

Because vaccine supply is more consistent, the number of appointments available in our community is increasing. This reduces the period of time between when the interest form is filled out and when an individual is contacted for an appointment.

“We were ready with a mass dispensing location before we had the vaccine to support it. Now that we’re getting larger shipments more regularly, we are in a good position to quickly distribute vaccine to those currently eligible with minimal wait times,” Jeff Kuhr, Mesa County Public Health Executive Director, said.

Mesa County Public Health has contacted more than 16,000 individuals in the 70 and older category who filled out our interest form via email at least once. MCPH staff is now working through a list of about 1,000 individuals who indicated they preferred phone-only contact for scheduling. 

In the 65-69 category, we have contacted more than 4,000 individuals for scheduling. 

We encourage all residents over the age of 65 to visit the Mesa County Public Health website and fill out our vaccine interest form. A link to our self-scheduling system is sent directly to individuals on that list, sometimes within a few days.

While continuing to prioritize older adults, on March 5, 2021, Colorado will move into Phase 1B.3 of vaccine distribution.  This phase was updated on February 26 and now includes:

  • People age 60 or older
  • Frontline essential agricultural and grocery store workers
  • People age 16-59 with two or more high-risk conditions; defined as patients who are currently receiving treatment or have received treatment within the last month for cancer), chronic kidney disease, COPD, diabetes mellitus (types 1 and 2), Down syndrome, specific heart conditions (heart failure, cardiomyopathies or coronary heart disease, and severe valvular/congenital heart disease), obesity (BMI ≥ 30kg/m^2), pregnancy, sickle cell disease, solid organ transplant, individuals with disabilities who require direct care in their home, and people with disabilities that prevent them from wearing masks. Individuals who qualify should indicate this as their reason on their interest form; documentation of conditions is not required.

In addition to Mesa County Public Health, other providers in our community are offering appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations. Local provider information is updated periodically on the provider information page of our website. 

If you are unable to complete the interest form online call 970-248-6900. Press Option 7, and leave a callback number. Individuals who are more comfortable communicating in Spanish should call the Mesa County Public Health Spanish-language line at 970-255-3700.

Mesa County Moves to Level Yellow: Concern

Mesa County Moves to Level Yellow: Concern

Mesa County continues to experience a decline in cases of COVID-19 and will transition to Level Yellow: Concern, effective February 17. Under the new level, most industries are allowed 50% capacity with social distancing measures in place. Personal gatherings under the State of Colorado’s Dial framework are considered a high-risk activity and remain limited to up to 10 people from no more than two households. 

Private and personal gatherings continue to be a frequent source of transmission in Mesa County, accounting for approximately 9% of recent cases. Transmission from a family member remains the largest source of exposure with approximately 63% of known cases coming from a family member, according to case investigation data.

In early January, the State revised the Dial system, moving to one-week measures and changing the metrics to qualify for each level. Capacity restrictions at each level did not change.

In order to qualify for Level Yellow: Concern, Mesa County has demonstrated sustained declines to meet the thresholds in three key areas:

     • Between 100 and 300 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one week; 

     • Rate of positive tests is no more than 7.5%; 

     • Stable or declining hospitalizations.

The level shift comes six weeks after illness levels allowed a shift from Severe Risk: Red to High Risk: Orange.

To track case counts and other data related to disease levels in our community, visit the Mesa County Public Health COVID-19 data dashboard here.

En Español



El condado de Mesa continúa experimentando una disminución en los casos de COVID-19 y pasará al Nivel de color Amarillo: Preocupación, a partir del 17 de febrero. Bajo el nuevo nivel, la mayoría de las industrias (negocios) tienen una capacidad del 50% con medidas de distanciamiento social implementadas. Las reuniones personales bajo el marco Dial del Estado de Colorado se consideran una actividad de alto riesgo y se limitan a hasta 10 personas de no más de dos hogares.

Las reuniones privadas y personales siguen siendo una fuente frecuente de transmisión en el condado de Mesa y representan aproximadamente el 9% de los casos recientes. La transmisión de un miembro de la familia sigue siendo la mayor fuente de exposición con aproximadamente el 63% de los casos conocidos que provienen de un miembro de la familia, según los datos del equipo de investigación de casos.

A principios de enero, el Estado revisó el sistema Dial, pasando a medidas de una semana y cambiando el criterio para calificar para cada nivel. Las restricciones de capacidad en cada nivel no cambiaron.

Para calificar para el Nivel Amarillo: Preocupación, el condado de Mesa ha demostrado disminuciones sostenidas para cumplir con el principio en tres áreas clave:

  • Entre 100 y 300 casos de COVID-19 por 100.000 personas en una semana;
  • El número de pruebas positivas no supera el 7,5%;
  • Hospitalizaciones estables o en disminución.

El cambio de nivel se produce seis semanas después de que los niveles de enfermedad permitieran un cambio de Riesgo Severo: Rojo a Riesgo Alto: Naranja.

Para realizar un seguimiento de los recuentos de casos y otros datos relacionados con los niveles de enfermedad en nuestra comunidad, visite el panel de datos COVID-19 de Salud Pública del Condado de Mesa aquí.
