COVID Response And Recovery
Face Covering Requirements
Masks are required to be worn in all buildings whether they’re public or private that are open to the public. When outside or on trails, masks are required if there’s a risk of being 6 feet of another person who’s not of the same household for more than 10 minutes.
The Pitkin County Public Health Order Language states:
- Non-medical, cloth face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required to be worn in all buildings, public and private, that are open to the public.
- Face coverings are required to be worn outside whenever there is a risk of being within 6 feet of another person who is not of the same household for more than ten minutes.
- Children who are under the age of two years and anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance are exempt from this requirement.
