Governor Lifts Statewide Mask Order
Park County, Colo. – Effective Sunday, Colorado has a new mask order in place that eases some of the restrictions for counties in Level Green to opt out of the statewide mask requirements. Park County is in Level Blue on the state’s COVID19 Dial, so the new order means individuals must still wear a mask when gathering with 10 or more unrelated, unvaccinated people in indoor settings.
In addition, in all counties, medical or non-medical cloth face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required to be worn when entering or within the following public and private settings:
- Preschool through grade 12 schools (including extracurricular activities), child care centers and services, and indoor children’s camps;
- Public areas of state government facilities, and areas in state government facilities where members of the public come into contact with state government employees;
- Congregate care facilities, including nursing facilities, assisted living residences, intermediate care facilities, and group homes;
- Prisons and Jails;
- Emergency medical and other healthcare settings (including hospitals, ambulance service centers, urgent care centers, non-ambulatory surgical structures, clinics, doctors’ offices, and non-urgent care medical structures);
- Personal services, as defined by Public Health Order (PHO) 20-36 such as hair and nail salons; and,
- Limited healthcare settings, as defined by PHO 20-36.
The mask-wearing requirements only apply to people who are age 11 and older.
The new order is in effect for 30 days, expiring on May 2 unless extended by the Governor. For details, please visit https://covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance.
