COVID-19 Response


Colorado’s Response to COVID-19:

Colorado is managing COVID-19 public health orders under a Dial Framework, which standardizes different levels of “openness” at the county level. This allows for counties and the state 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.

Colorado’s dial framework has six color levels to provide guidance to counties, and counties may move back and forth between levels, depending primarily on three metrics:

  • The number of new cases

  • The percent positivity of COVID-19 tests

  • The impact on hospitals, as well as local considerations

It remains your responsibility to Know Before You Go and understand county restrictions where you live and where you travel within the state by checking the Dial Status at covid19.colorado.gov.

While vaccination programs are underway, it is imperative that Coloradans continue to follow simple, common-sense guidelines to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Wear face coverings, maintain social distancing of six feet wherever possible, stay home if you are feeling ill, frequently wash your hands and avoid large gatherings.
