The state of Colorado issued a new COVID-19 Safer at Home Order on April 27th which is in effect until May 26th. The Denver Metro counties (except Douglas County) are still under the older more strict health orders until May 8th.
Under the new Safer at Home Order –
Coloradans are no longer ordered to stay home, but are strongly advised to stay at home. Critical businesses are open and limited non-critical businesses are operating with strict precautions in place.
- Coloradans should stay home as much as possible, leaving only for a limited number of specific activities.
- When you go out, you must follow physical distancing requirements (6 feet of space between yourself and others) and wear a mask or face covering.
- Vulnerable people at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 should follow Stay-at-Home recommendations, which means only leaving home for medical care and essential activities.
Outdoor recreation activities are included as essential under the following rules:
- Recreate locally. Keep recreational activities within 10 miles of home to prevent disease spread.
- Individuals may participate in local and personal recreation in outside public spaces, as an authorized Necessary Activity, in groups no larger than 10 and practicing social distancing maintaining 6 feet between participants.
- It is best to socialize only with your household members, but physical activity promotes health and well-being. If you are engaging in outdoor activities with people outside your household, limit group size to 10 or fewer, and make sure there is at least 6 feet of physical distance between all people at all times.
- People should not gather in any outdoor space where they cannot maintain 6 feet of physician distance from one another. That includes pavilions, areas that offer shelter, or other outdoors areas that invite people to congregate in groups and do not allow for 6 feet of physical distance.
