Yesterday, following the Stay-At-Home Public Health Orders issued by Boulder County Public Health, Jefferson County Public Health and Tri-County Health Department, Gov. Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment issued a Stay-At-Home Order for the entire state of Colorado.

After much discussion and consideration, our three local health departments have decided to rescind the local level Orders and formally adopt the state’s Order. We believe this action will ensure Stay-At-Home requirements are consistent across the state, and hence will make it easier for our residents to follow.

We applaud Gov. Polis for taking this critical step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our state and ultimately, save lives.
