Keeping Our Rates Down: How can we do this? The Governor’s Office shared these great suggestions on 4/13/2021:

Along with getting the vaccine as soon as one becomes available, it’s crucial that Coloradans continue to take good sense safety measures including:

a. Wearing masks

b. Social distancing

c. Staying home when sick

d. Getting tested if you think you have been exposed to someone with COVID

e. Gathering outside in small groups instead of opting for indoors

Colorado’s dial framework standardizes different levels of “openness” at the county level. It is a tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic more sustainable, allowing us to balance, to the greatest extent possible, controlling the virus with our social and economic needs.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our Local Public Health Agencies (LPHA) and our communities to provide updated information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019).
