Tri County Health Update on Safer-At-Home Order and FAQs, 5.4.20


Tri-County Health Update: Non-Critical businesses located in a jurisdiction still subject to the Stay-At-Home Order (Adams and Arapahoe Counties) should not begin operations until that Order, set to expire on May 9, has been lifted. However, the Stay-At-Home Order permits Non-Critical Businesses to offer curbside pick-up and delivery of products.

  • Effective at 12:01 AM, Saturday, May 9th, 2020.  Non-critical retail, non-critical office, and personal services may begin to operate in limited capacities provided they can meet CDPHE’s specific requirements.
  • Non-Critical Retail may operate and offer goods through delivery service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, drive-up service, curbside delivery, or any other manner allowing for strict compliance with mandatory Social Distancing Requirements. Restricting interactions to curbside pick-up or delivery minimizes touch. Non-Critical Retailers are encouraged to continue curbside pick-up or delivery for longer-term service wherever possible. 
  • Non-Critical Retail may open at fifty percent (50%) capacity for in-person services if the business can demonstrate compliance with all CDPHE’s requirements.
  • Non-Critical Office-based Businesses may resume at fifty percent (50%) of their in-office occupancy if the business can demonstrate compliance with the
    requirements of CDPHE’s Order
  • Personal Services may resume subject to CDPHE’s requirements.
