State of Colorado
Effective April 16th, the State will retire its COVID dial and return guidance and health orders to local control.
Effective April 16, Douglas County will no longer be governed by the State of Colorado Dial nor any public health order issued by Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) that would create capacity limitations in places like restaurants, churches, and gyms. The opt-out decision impacts the entirety of Douglas County and its municipalities.
The Board-approved resolution – by a vote of 3-0 – opts Douglas County out of the TCHD Public Health order, thus in Douglas County, businesses would be allowed to determine what capacities are best for them, their patrons, and their employees.
A statewide mask order issued by the Governor’s Office on April 3, 2021, will continue to require that a mask be worn in public indoor spaces where 10 or more individuals are present. This statewide mask order is expected to expire on May 3, 2021.
In addition to the statewide mask order, an additional CDPHE order is expected that will limit indoor non-seated gatherings to no more than 500.
