Pitkin County’s COVID-19 incidence rate (number of cases per 100,000) continues to increase. Small, private gatherings are a primary source of community spread. Due to this quick and steady rise in cases, additional measures must be put in place to prevent Pitkin County from being moved into a more restrictive phase of the state’s Safer at Home Dial. Less congregating are proven strategies for reducing the spread of COVID-19. We are hopeful that these measures now will keep us on track to a successful winter season and prevent stricter state-imposed restrictions in the future.
As of October 30,2020, the Pitkin County Public Health Order has been revised to include stricter guidelines for personal gatherings. The number of people allowed to gather in unregulated settings will be limited to 5 people with no more than 2 separate households. THIS INCLUDES EVEN IF GATHERING MASKED, SOCIAL DISTANCED, AND/OR IN OUTDOOR SPACES. This guidance does not apply to restaurants or other establishments with mandated guidelines.
This Halloween, remember to keep gatherings to 5 or fewer people as you make your weekend plans, keep 6ft of distance, and wear your (COVID-protective) mask. Please review Pitkin County’s Halloween guidance and resources.
