Colorado's dial framework standardizes different levels of "openness" at the county level. The state is providing this tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic level more sustainable, allowing us to balance, to the greatest extent possible, controlling the virus with our social and economic needs.

Effective Nov. 20, an additional level was added to the dial, which is Level Purple: Extreme Risk.

The dial framework has six levels to guide county response to COVID-19. Counties move back and forth between levels, depending on three metrics. As the dial moves left toward Protect Our Neighbors, more people can participate in various activities. The state is in constant communication with counties to determine if/when stricter restrictions are needed.

See the Governor's amended order from Oct. 23 for additional information on restrictions based on your county's level of Safer at Home.

Because COVID-19 remains in Colorado, residents are advised to stay home as much as possible, practice good hygiene by washing hands frequently and avoid touching your face, wear a face covering or mask when you leave home, and connect with neighbors and loved ones virtually.

Visit the What you need to know page to learn more about COVID-19 and things you can do to protect yourself and others.

Tri-County Health Department's Frequently Asked Questions document can provide some additional guidance on the Safer-at-Home order. To stay up to date on any additional orders or guidance at the local level, go to Tri-County Health Department's website

Thank you, Aurora, for doing your part, observing public health guidelines, reaching out to neighbors and friends, lifting up front-line health care workers and first responders, and supporting local businesses during this time.

New public health orders from Tri-County Health Department
Tri-County Health Department issued new public health orders for Arapahoe and Adams counties designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The measures differ depending on the county, but include earlier restrictions on the sale of alcoholic beverages, limits on the size of personal gatherings and other measures.

Face covering orders and guidance
Tri-County Health Department extended its public health order (en español) effective for the duration of the pandemic or until amended or rescinded requiring face coverings in indoor public spaces and outdoor public spaces whenever a six-foot distancing cannot be maintained. Visit Tri-County Health's website for more information.

Gov. Jared Polis extended and amended a state executive order mandating facial coverings Dec. 8, which remains in effect for at least another 30 days. The order requires people in Colorado who are age 11 years and older to wear a covering over their noses and mouths when entering or moving within any public indoor space or while using or waiting to use public or non-personal transportation services. People who do not have to wear a mask include those who are 10 years old and younger and those who cannot medically tolerate a face covering. Children ages 2 and under should not wear masks or cloth face coverings.

The Aurora City Council renewed the city manager’s disaster declaration (effective July 20) to allow the city to delegate enforcement authority of public health and executive orders related to facial coverings to other city departments aside from the Aurora Police Department. The disaster declaration also allows the city to quickly implement necessary policies to address regulatory changes, directives or licensing restrictions contained in the executive orders or public health orders.

Research shows that people who have no symptoms can spread COVID-19. Wearing a non-medical face mask helps minimize the spread of the virus. Face coverings are a safe, inexpensive, effective and easy way to slow the spread of COVID-19, used in conjunction with other best practices such as social distancing, handwashing and staying at home while experiencing symptoms.

Businesses are required to post a notice about the executive and public health orders. Posters are available online to download at or at

Residents who have concerns about the mandate not being followed may reach out to Tri-County Health Department’s call center at 303.220.9200. Concerns about business non-compliance may be sent to or 303.739.7057. The city’s Tax and Licensing Division, Code Enforcement and Open Space and Natural Resources Division will educate residents and the public about these orders and will enforce the rules upon repeated violations.
