COVID-19 Resources


This link is the current public health order issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE). Please review the following screens for general guidance for individuals and businesses. To learn more: Safer At Home

We must remember the Safer-at-Home phase is not going back to life as normal and the goal is to maintain 60-65% physical distancing.  Keep in mind, the goal of the Safer-at-Home phase is to maintain 60-65% physical distancing. This means:

  • Vulnerable populations and older adults must stay home unless absolutely necessary. 

  • No group gatherings of more than 10 people. 

  • Travel for recreational purposes should be limited to your own community (your county of residence or no more than 10 miles).

  • Critical businesses will remain open with strict precautions (social distancing, masks for all employees, more frequent cleanings, etc.)

  • Retail businesses may open for curbside delivery and phased-in public opening with strict precautions.

  • Nightclubs, gyms and spas will remain closed. 

  • Elective medical and dental procedures begin, with strict precautions to ensure adequate personal protective equipment and the ability to meet critical care needs. 

  • Personal services (salons, tattoo parlors, dog grooming, personal training, etc.) will open with strict precautions. 

  • K-12 schools and postsecondary institutions will continue to suspend normal in-person instruction for the 2019-2020 school year.  

  • Telecommuting continues for offices. Starting on May 4, up to 50% of staff can work in person (with social distancing in place).

  • The state is not changing requirements for nursing homes and other senior care facilities. There will continue to be restrictions on visiting residents.


The Safer-at-Home phase is not:

  • A free-for-all

  • An opportunity to leave the house as much as possible and spread the virus to others

  • An excuse to not wear a facial covering, or begin giving hugs or handshakes 

  • Going to the mountains to spend the weekend 

  • Conducting unnecessary travel

  • Having parties or get togethers

  • Playing in pick up sports games
