Safer At Home And In The Vast, Great Outdoors

  • On November 10, Governor Polis issued the fourth amendment to Public Health Order 20-20 related to Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Residences and other Group Homes for COVID19 Prevention and Response.
  • On November 2, the COVID-19 Dial Public Health Order 20-36 was issued. This Order supersedes and replaces Public Health Orders 20-32 and 20-35, as amended.
  • October 27, Governor Polis amended the Safer at Home Public Health Order 20-35 for a fourth time, authorizing the operation of gyms in Safer Level 3 at 25% capacity and capped at 25 people. 
  • On October 23, Governor Polis amended the Safer at Home Public Health Order 20-35, to limit personal gatherings in all counties at all Safer at Home levels. The revised order reduces the size of personal gatherings to no more than 10 people from no more than two separate households. 
    • Why was this action taken? In response to an alarming increase in hospitalizations due to COVID-19, and recent case investigation data show that since July attending social gatherings and community exposures have become more common among new cases.  This suggests people have relaxed their precautions and are interacting more closely with a greater number of households.
