Tri-County Issues New Face Covering Order

Tri-County Issues New Face Covering Order
Posted on 11/23/2021

With COVID-19 hospitalizations surging in Colorado, Tri-County Health Department's board of health has issued a public health order requiring masking in all public indoor spaces in Adams and Arapahoe counties. The order is in effect from Nov. 24 through Jan. 2, and thereafter until staffed ICU bed availability is above 10%. Read the full public order.

The order follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation that people ages 2 and older, including fully vaccinated individuals, should wear face coverings indoors in public in areas with high rates of community transmission, which currently includes Adams and Arapahoe counties.

Exemptions from the public health order include individuals under age 2, those who cannot medically tolerate a face mask, and businesses and facilities that implement a voluntary Vaccine Verification Program using a policy that assures full vaccination of all employees, staff, guests and customers.
