On Nov. 9 the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) ordered the County to move from “Level Yellow: Safer at Home – Concern” to “Level Orange: Safer at Home – High Risk” on the state’s dial dashboard, as a result of a sharp rise in COVID rates. Under the Level Orange order, further restrictions are made necessary. Read the full press release.

DENVER – Gov. Jared Polis, in partnership with the Colorado Restaurant Association (CRA), the Colorado Restaurant Foundation, and Xcel Energy, announced that applications are open for the Winter Outdoor Grant Program, which will provide funds to restaurants to winterize patio space for outdoor dining. In mid-October, Gov. Polis was joined by CRA and restaurateurs to discuss ways to support local restaurants during the pandemic.
Apply Here For Colorado Winter Outdoor Grants Application
The Winter Outdoor Grant Program is made possible by a seed commitment from Xcel Energy Foundation and Xcel Energy, which made a $500,000 contribution to the Colorado Restaurant Association Foundation to help support local restaurants through the winter season. In addition to this donation, they are also committing to matching donations of $50,000, up to an additional $250,000, for every $500,000 that’s raised for the Colorado Restaurant Association Foundation. That’s a possible total contribution of $750,000 from the Xcel Energy Foundation and Xcel Energy. This is one of the single largest gifts the company has made in its history. Grant funds can be used toward design, construction, applicable fees and supplies like tents, heaters, etc. Grants will be distributed through the Colorado Restaurant Foundation.
The program developed feasible ideas for how all restaurants could effectively create and adapt to additional dining via the Outdoor Winter Design Workshop held on October 19. This event brought together the American Council of Engineering Companies of Colorado (ACEC), the American Institute of Architects Colorado (AIA), the Associated General Contractors of Colorado (AGC), other design and construction professionals, public health officials, representatives from local fire departments, building officials, restaurateurs, and more. Teams were assigned a specific outdoor space type (e.g. rooftop, parking lot, adjacent park) and geography (e.g. urban, mountain resort). They were asked to consider safety, cost, permitting, regulations, ease of implementation, and the comfort of the guest as they create their concepts. The final conceptual plans are now available at COOutdoorDining.org.

This week, the Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners (Board) learned that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is ordering the County to move from Safer at Home Level 1 to Level 2 on the state’s dial dashboard, as a result of rising COVID case counts and positivity rates within the County over the past several weeks.
Public health officials monitor case counts and positivity rates, along with hospitalization trends, to determine whether the spread of COVID is rising, falling or holding steady, and whether a new public health order or shift in the state’s dial framework are warranted. As of Monday, Oct. 26, Arapahoe County’s COVID incidence rate is 299.47 and the positivity rate is 6.95%; both numbers have increased significantly since early September.
CDPHE’s changes will go into effect Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 5 p.m., and the County will provide a status report to the agency in about two weeks.
