COLORADO’S NEW COVID-19 DIAL 3.0
As more Coloradans are eligible to get vaccinated and choose to do so, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has released Dial 3.0, the latest update to Colorado’s COVID-19 dial framework, and the updated COVID-19 Dial 3.0 Public Health Order. State officials expect that Dial 3.0 will remain in effect until mid-April, at which point the state plans to retire the dial and implement a new public health order that gives greater control over capacity restrictions to local public health agencies.
Clear Creek County remains in Level Blue. The main changes in Dial 3.0 for Level Blue are:
- The metrics range for Level Blue is now 36 - 100 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people. NOTE: Per the State’s Dial 3.0 Public Health Order, for counties with less than 30,000 population, a comparable case count based on the county’s population will be used in determining dial levels.
- Bars can now open under Level Blue. The capacity limit is 25% capacity or 75 people, whichever is fewer.
- Outdoor events in Level Blue no longer have state-level capacity restrictions under the dial. Counties may choose to implement capacity restrictions on outdoor events at the local level.
- Retail, offices, and non-critical manufacturing in Level Blue may now open to 75% capacity, up from 50%.
- The state will follow CDC’s guidance on personal gatherings. The CDC still strongly recommends avoiding larger gatherings and crowds to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Colorado’s and Clear Creek County’s mask mandates remain in effect.
UNTIL THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION IS VACCINATED, THE BEST WAY TO KEEP OURSELVES AND OUR COMMUNITIES HEALTHY IS TO:
- Stay home as much as possible, limit in-person gatherings, and avoid travel.
- When in public, wear a mask, keep your distance from others, and practice good hygiene.
