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. Right now, we are in Level 2: 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 and in the Vast, Great Outdoors||Level 3: Protect our Neighbors|
|Everyone was required to stay at home except for grocery shopping, exercise and necessary activities. Only critical businesses were open.||While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our great outdoors than in confined indoor spaces.||Local public health agencies have the ability to contain surges in cases and outbreaks through testing, case investigation, contact tracing, isolation, quarantine, site-specific closures, and the enforcement of public health orders. |
