Pitkin COVID-19 Dial
Pitkin County’s COVID-19 case incidence rate continues to spike at an alarming rate.
On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, the State of Colorado and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment unveiled a new color in its COVID-19 dial, Purple, a level indicating the direst of circumstances with extreme risk of disease spread. Purple includes implementing a “Stay at Home” order to be put in place if hospital and health care services approach 90 percent capacity or experience a critical lack of staff and personal protection equipment. The state recently revised the levels that are now presented in the Pitkin COVID-19 dial. Please find more details on these updates on the State’s public health order here and on the State COVID-19 dial information page here.

However, in response to our incidence rate climbing above 350/100,000 – the metric for Level Red Severe Risk – Pitkin County continues to evaluate the impact of moving into this level and collectively identifying protective measures we can implement beforehand.

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 ‘stay at home’. The metrics used to define the levels are new cases, percent positivity and impact on hospitalizations. Pitkin County will move between levels based on the these three metrics. Pitkin County is currently in LEVEL 2: Concern. To view Pitkin County’s current data and the guidelines and restrictions see below.
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. We are working on adding these additional data points to this page in the coming weeks
