Today, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) announced that a new version of the COVID-19 dial tool, Dial 2.0, will go into effect Saturday, February 6 at 9 a.m. Counties will be moved to the appropriate level on Dial 2.0. at this time. Jefferson County and Adams County will join many Denver metro countries moving from Level Orange to Level Yellow on Saturday.
Level Yellow business capacity restrictions include:
• 50% or 50 people at restaurants, places of worship, and non-critical manufacturing
• 50% at offices and retail
• 50% or 50 people at gyms/fitness centers, personal services, and limited health care settings
DIAL 2.0 FAQ
Five star businesses are still allowed to operate one level lower on the dial, except they may not operate in Protect Our Neighbors unless the county is formally in Protect Our Neighbors. Because caution is still a priority, counties in Yellow with a 5 Star Business Program may only operate in Blue once 70% of 70-year-olds in the state are vaccinated with at least one dose, expected to happen by the end of the month.
