Vaccination events 2-13-2021

On Monday the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment amended its public health order that will remove restrictions on large indoor gatherings and updated face covering requirements starting on Tuesday.

The state's new face covering requirement now applies to people 12 or older, who are eligible for the vaccine but are either unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated, according to the order.

Additionally, the updated face mask requirement only applies in certain settings such as schools, camps, Colorado Department of Motor Vehicle officers, prisons, jails and emergency medical or other healthcare settings.

Some exemptions to the face mask requirement are allowed such as outdoor activities at schools and camps.

However, the updated order maintains some restrictions on certain activities with the goal goal to continue taking steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. For example, hospitals reporting COVID-19 data will continue, and some restrictions will be put into place if hospital capacity exceeds 85%, according to the order.
