FCDPHE says that it is encouraging the public to be mindful of those who choose to continue wearing a mask and respectful of businesses and entities that choose to keep mask requirements in place to enter their establishments. It adds that it appreciates everyone’s continued efforts and cooperation to slow the spread of COVID-19. In addition, CDPHE will be providing a new public health order for indoor seating. It will take this step because CDPHE concluded that it should empower counties to take local measures that are needed for their communities to decrease the spread of COVID-19, reducing the state’s role on the economic impact that Colorado has seen over the last year.

Public Indoor Space- When more than 100 people are gathered in a room, the setting may operate at 100 percent capacity, not to exceed 500 people, with 6 feet distancing between parties of unvaccinated people or when vaccination status is unknown. This requirement does not apply to licensed retail food establishments.
Outdoor Events- Outdoor ticketed, seated event venues in excess of 30,000 square feet require consultation between the local public health agency and CDPHE. This only applies to seated outdoor events.
CDPHE has the authority to require counties whose resident hospitalizations threaten to exceed 85 percent of hospital or hospital system capacity to implement additional restrictions to mitigate disease transmission.

The following changes are to take place under the new public health order that goes into effect on April 16: Dial 3.0 went into effect on March 24, part of a two-phase reopening process for the state. In addition to development of Dial 3.0, Governor Polis has extended Executive Order D 2020 190, requiring masks to be worn till early May, at which time he will reevaluate the situation.
