COVID-19 Public Health Orders

last updated 06/19/20
  • Critical businesses are still open.

  • Non-critical businesses are open with restrictions.

  • Stay at home as much as possible.

  • Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and don’t touch your face.

  • Wear a face covering or mask when you leave your home.

  • Connect with neighbors and loved ones remotely. It is safest continuing to only socialize with members of your household. Any gatherings with people outside your household, either indoors or outdoors, should adhere to all physical distancing requirements, the use of face coverings, and other recommendations.

  • Logan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma Counties have been granted a variance at this time. Refer to their county variances for gathering sizes.

Colorado has slowed the spread of COVID-19 through Stay-at-Home and Safer at Home orders, and we must keep it up. The virus is still present in Colorado and can re-surge at any time. Everyone needs to do their part for themselves, their loved ones, and our community. Business and Gathering Guidance.

Right now, we are in Level 3: Safer at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors.  While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our vast outdoors than in confined indoor spaces. Much of Colorado is now open with restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk for severe illness. 

People should be prepared for state and local public health orders to be extended, amended, or changed as needed to protect public health. This means we may move between the different levels during this pandemic:

  • Level 1: Stay at Home

  • Level 2: Safer at Home

  • Level 3: Safer at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors
