Safer-At-Home Business Reopening Process


UPDATE: Effective May 27: Guidance for restaurants & food services: The intent of this guidance is to open establishments for the primary purpose of dine-in service. Any establishment that can adhere to the guidelines below and ensure access to food for on-premise consumption can open. The provision of food/meals must be from a licensed retail food establishment. Other kinds of establishments that do not serve food will be evaluated in June.

Governor Jared Polis has issued an update on how the state is responding to COVID-19 and introduced the Level 2: Safer-At-Home Executive Order and Public Health Order. The order will expire 30 days from April 27, 2020, unless extended further by Executive Order.

The CO Department of Public Health & Environment and the CO State of Emergency Operations Center has created industry-specific checklists that businesses must follow prior to reopening:
