State Moves Denver Back to Safer at Home Level 3
As of October 27, 2020, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) has moved the City and County of Denver, among other counties, to the more restrictive Safer at Home Dial Level 3. This move is in response to rapidly increasing case incidents, positivity rates, and hospitalizations.
Denver’s tougher face-covering mandate, issued on October 16, 2020, is also still in effect until further notice.
As of October 27, 2020 the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) has moved the City and County of Denver to the more restrictive Safer at Home Dial Level 3.
With the move to Safer at Home Level 3, Denver is now under more strict, state mandated, restrictions. Face coverings are still mandatory while inside any public space, including businesses and government buildings and while waiting for or riding on public transportation. Face coverings are now also required in outdoor settings, when an individual is with others outside of their household and when proper social distancing cannot be maintained.
Businesses must reduce their operating capacity to 25 percent. They must ensure they are able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, as well as abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.
While we are all still safer at home, we are on a path that will move us into the Stay at Home phase again. We MUST adhere to restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk for severe illness.
