Larimer County, CO — Larimer County Public Health has been notified in writing by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment that the uptick in daily case counts in Larimer County has put the variance at risk. Many of these cases are connected to fourth of July gatherings.
Larimer County is required to create a mitigation plan to show how the county will decrease and stabilize case counts. This plan must be completed by Monday and requires strong community enforcement and compliance plans for face coverings, social distancing, and following the required guidelines for businesses. View the Larimer County Mitigation Plan that was submitted here. The state has not approved this yet so it is subject to change.
A revocation of the variance could potentially impact our restaurants and breweries, places of worship, public gathering sizes and graduations. It is always the hope of LCDHE that there is no rollback and that businesses are not closed again in Larimer County, but the revocation of the local variance from the state would not give the county a choice.
