Safer-at-home

Colorado health officials have changed COVID-19 restrictions for counties as cases and hospitalizations continue to climb. Governor Jared Polis says the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will adjust the statewide dial starting on Friday, adding "Level Red" in the Safer-at-Home phase. Under the new Level Red, restaurants will not be able to offer indoor dining options. They would only be able to offer patio service, takeout or delivery. Last call for alcohol will also move up to 8 p.m. Fifteen counties will move to stricter guidelines at the end of the week.

Level Purple

Starting Friday, Denver and other, yet-to-be-identified counties will tighten their coronavirus restrictions, including prohibiting indoor dining at restaurants. The new Level Red restrictions follow an updated statewide COVID-19 dial. They fall one step short of a full shutdown, which is now Level Purple. One of the main reasons for creating this new level is to help preserve the state and local economies as much as possible in the absence of further federal aid. If Denver and other countries move to Level Purple restrictions, outdoor dining will no longer be allowed at restaurants, according to the new guidelines.
