Pitkin COVID-19 Dial
Level Yellow Guidelines & Restrictions
On February 5, the state announced an update to Colorado’s COVID-19 Dial 2.0. The Dial 2.0 changes the metrics that determine each county’s current level on the dial. This includes measuring counties with a 7-day incidence rate rather than a 14-day incidence rate. In addition Dial 2.0 increases the range of incidence rates for each level.
The state has indicated there will be new metrics for communities of 30,000 or less but has yet to release what those metrics may be. For more information from the State see the State’s public health order and the State COVID-19 dial information page.

CDPHE Level Guidelines & Restrictions
As part of the October 7th Pitkin County Public Health Order, the County has adopted the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) COVID-19 Dial. The dial has five levels ranging from ‘Protect Our Neighbors’ to ‘Extreme Risk’. The metrics used to define the levels are new cases, percent positivity, and impact on hospitalizations. Pitkin County will move between levels based on these three metrics.
In addition to the three state-required metrics, Pitkin County Public Health will continue to closely monitor local data to evaluate the spread of disease transmission in our community.
