MarillacHealth earns Five-Star Variance Protection Program Rating
The Variance Protection Program, sometimes referred to as the 5-star rating program, is a collaborative effort between Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) and the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce to recognize establishments implementing public health recommendations related to COVID-19.
How does a business qualify?
Businesses who submitted a safety plan to MCPH for reopening under Safer at Home Phase 2 will be visited by an MCPH representative and be rated for the Variance Protection Program. Businesses can fill out a form if they have already received an audit, or are not required to submit a reopening application, but would like to see if they qualify. An MCPH representative will visit the establishment and do an audit of their procedures as it relates to COVID-19. The representative will score them on a series of items required in the current public health order and outlined in the reopening plan.
Are businesses that don’t have this rating unsafe?
No. Participation in this program is completely voluntary, it is intended to be a resource for those looking for establishments who are complying with public health orders and provide a list of safe places to go.
- To avoid and reduce unnecessary visits to the clinic or eligibility office so we can slow this virus, you can call and request an application be mailed to you. You can complete and mail back to us and no need to come in or sign for your card. We will mail it to you!
- If you need to meet with Eligibility in person, the 602 Bookcliff Avenue office has re-opened if you need an application or to pick up your card.
