On Friday, the state announced that it will move Arapahoe County to Level Yellow on the COVID dial dashboard, effective at 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 6. This decision will further reopen the County’s economy by allowing many area businesses to expand their capacities.
All County businesses will be able to operate at Level Yellow restrictions until the state has vaccinated 70% of our 70-and-older population, which is expected to be completed by the end of February. Once we have cleared that threshold, and provided that our COVID rates remain steady or drop, the County’s Five-Star Recovery Partners will be able to shift to Level Blue restrictions.
