Public Health Order
Tri-County Health Department has issued a public health order (public health order-Spanish) limiting gatherings—both public and private—to reduce the recent surge in Adams County cases and to protect the public’s health and the economy. The public health order goes into effect at 9 p.m. today and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1, unless it’s extended. The order includes the following:
- Spectators are prohibited at Colorado High School Sports Association (CHSSA) sanctioned sporting events.
- Spectators are prohibited from adult recreational and league sports.
- Organized recreational and league youth sports are limited to 25 people per field, including spectators. Coaches and referees are excluded from the 25-person capacity limit.
- Personal indoor gatherings are limited to no more than 5 individuals. Outdoor personal gatherings are limited to no more than 10 individuals. Life rite ceremonies are excluded. Nothing in this order prohibits the gathering of members living in the same household.
- Cease all alcohol beverage sales at 10 p.m.
Pledge to Protect
In the last few weeks, Adams County has seen a troubling spike in confirmed COVID‐19 cases. This rise in caseloads has threatened to move Adams County to Level 3 of the State's Safer at Home Public Health Order. Among other restrictions, Level 3 status would reduce restaurant capacity and potentially force fitness centers and gyms to offer only remote options.
To remain at Level 2, Adams County worked with Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) to finalize the Adams County COVID-19 Mitigation Plan to help control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Residents are encouraged to access free COVID-19 testing at Water World if they have symptoms or have come into contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive.
