PITKIN COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER requires masks in all public indoor spaces for anyone over the age of two and in public outdoor spaces within 6 ft. of non-household members regardless of vaccination status.
Governor Polis updated Colorado’s mask requirements to align with CDC guidance, which includes the following suggestions:
- Fully vaccinated – no mask is needed unless settings you visit require it (e.g. congregate care facilities and organizations, such as nursing homes and jails)
- Unvaccinated – continue to wear a mask indoors
However, Pitkin County Public Health will continue with its current mask mandate and transition to an indoor-only mask mandate starting May 28th. For more information about what the new indoor mask mandate will include, please visit our latest press release. Between now and May 28th, please follow our current mask mandates, which include, but are not limited to:
- 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.
- Face coverings are required to be worn while using or waiting to use public (buses, light-rail) or non-personal (taxis, car services, ride-shares) transportation services.
- Face coverings are required in Pitkin County for indoor public spaces such as grocery stores, retail, and restaurants while not actively eating or drinking.
- Businesses must post signs at entrances that instruct customers they must wear a mask when entering or moving around inside the business and must refuse service to individuals not wearing masks.
