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

On Thursday, Nov. 12, 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:

“Late on Tuesday, Nov. 10, we learned the state of Colorado will move Douglas County from Level Yellow to the more restrictive Level Orange on the state’s Safer at Home Dial effective Friday, Nov. 13, 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. We will continue to partner with Tri-County Health Department, our municipalities, large special districts, and our business community as well as regional and statewide leadership to advocate aggressively for the behaviors that reduce COVID-19 transmission.”
