COVID-19 Updates

We in Colorado are on a steady, thoughtful path to reopening our tourism economy. Gov. Jared Polis is weighing the latest public health guidance as he approves new plans allowing various business sectors to resume operations.

The Safer at Home and in the Vast Great Outdoors Public Health Order, is still in effect. Click the link to learn more.

Colorado State has issued a statewide mask ordinance that requires anyone 10 years of age and older to wear a mask when in an indoor public space. There are some exemptions as well, please click the link to learn more. Executive Order D 2020 138.

Boulder County Public Health has updated the Boulder County Facial Covering Order to align with the Colorado Face Covering Order by adopting the face covering requirement in all public indoor spaces for every person over 10 years of age at all times and continuing to require face coverings outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained. The Order does not have an end date and will remain in place until it is rescinded.
