Douglas County COVID19 Update

Commissioners respond to CDPHE COVID-19 Safer at Home Dial Level Change

On Friday, Oct. 30, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners issued the following statement regarding the notification by CDPHE of Douglas County’s COVID-19 Safer at Home Dial Level Change:

“On Thursday, Oct. 29, we learned the state of Colorado moved Douglas County from Level 1 to the more restrictive Level 2 on the state’s Safer at Home Dial effective immediately, based primarily on COVID-19 case numbers, positivity, and incidence rate. Our Board’s focus is on the health of our citizens and our economy, paired with a renewed request to state decision-makers that they also consider actual severity (hospitalizations and deaths), a more accurate layer of science to enhance the Dial metric’s validity, and which public health experts have continued to request. Douglas County will continue to partner with Tri-County Health Department and like-minded local, regional and statewide leadership for this science-driven severity metric, while also advocating aggressively for the behaviors that reduce COVID-19 transmission.”

Visit the Douglas County COVID-19 Community Response and Variances page for more information.
