Colorado Easing COVID-19 Restrictions Again Next Week
Things are slowly— but surely— going back to normal.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment issued a release Friday night saying that they haven't finalized the changes that would loosen restrictions in Colorado just yet: in fact, they're taking feedback from the community on the proposed measures until noon on Monday, and if finalized, the changes will go into effect Wednesday, March 24.
You can offer your thoughts in the form, which you can find right here. It includes questions like:
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: "Updating the Dial will allow my community and the State of Colorado to be more responsive to local conditions"?
Do the proposed adjustments to the Dial strike the right balance between disease suppression, preventing a breach of hospital capacity, and economic hardship?
As of right now, Larimer, Weld, and Boulder County are all sitting at Level Yellow, with 5 Star businesses allowed to operate at Level Blue.
According to Denver7, the changes would mean no more limits on gathering sizes, and bars, gyms, and indoor event spaces moving to 50% capacity. Plus, outdoor events spaces would have no limits on capacities.
To see what moving to Level Blue would mean for Larimer and Weld County, see the CDPHE's diagram right here.
