Public health recommendations to protect our communities

We understand these recommendations affect people’s lives. Colorado makes these recommendations in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our partner agencies based on the best and most recent information we have to protect the public.

CDC recommendations for businesses and employers   

Event and community gatherings

In accordance with CDC guidelines, the Colorado Department of Public Health also issued a public health order prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people. Gatherings include community, civic, public, leisure, faith-based events, sporting events with spectators, concerts, conventions, fundraisers, parades, fairs, festivals or any similar event that brings more than 10 people together.

If you are considering postponing or canceling events and gatherings, coordinate with your local public health agency and other community decision-makers to align with community preparedness and mitigation practices.
