Update for March 26th:The State of Colorado issued a stay-at-home order that is in effect starting at 6 am on March 26th until April 11th. We believe that under Section III. C. 4 we qualify as a critical retail business "engaged in the retail sale of food and any other household consumer products (such as cleaning and personal care products)" and will continue to be open for business.

Original post from March 25th:
As of 5 pm on March 26th, Larimer County has been told to stay home unless absolutely necessary to help control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.(For the full announcement from the county visit the Larimer Health website https://www.larimer.org/health/stay-at-home-order) We have been in touch with the Larimer County Health Department, and under the category of Health Supply Store, personal goods store, as well as a place that delivers goods directly to the home, we have been told that we can remain operational.
We will continue to take your phone calls, answer your emails, and fill your online orders.We know that right now, more than ever before, it is vitally important that we are here to support you as we all hunker in and try to stay healthy and sane. We will continue to offer shipping anywhere in the country, as well as local side-walk pick-up from our sanitized box (it gets sanitized in between each customer pick up). Inside the store we have adopted strict cleaning procedures and are maintaining a 6 foot distance between the two employees who are working each shift. We have also all agreed to intense social distancing outside of the store, and anyone who shows any symptoms of any kind of illness (or has a family member who shows symptoms) will stay home for two weeks. We are doing our very best to stay open for you so that you can access the herbs and other supplies you are looking for right now. We are operating with less staff and limited hours, so your orders may take longer to fill than normal, but please rest assured that we will get back to you. We hope that during this time you can find support not only from your loved ones, but also from the plants, and that you can carry with you a hope for the future to come.
Thank you again for supporting your small apothecary, we hope you are staying well.(For more information about herbs that we are finding supportive during this time, as well as other herbal resources to check out please see our previous post: www.goldenpoppyherbs.com/covid-19-and-herbs )
