Colorado’s dial framework has added a new, highest level. Counties were previously assessed using five levels. Now, there are six with the addition of the dial's newest and most restrictive level: Level Purple. The new levels will go into effect Friday, November 20, 2020 with 15 Colorado counties moving to the state's now-second-highest level: Level Red.
Counties move back and forth between levels depending on three metrics including, the number of new cases, the percent positivity of COVID tests, and the impact on hospitals, and local considerations. Larimer County's current case and hospitalization rates continue to put its Level Yellow status at risk. The next level for Larimer County would be the state's higher risk Safer At Home level, Level Orange.
