Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues -

Vaccine distribution locally and across the state continues to expand, with all Coloradans 16 years old and up now eligible. Larimer County reports that approximately one-third of county residents have received at least one dose, and one in five are fully vaccinated. This is incredible progress, particularly when we remember where we were this time last year. Still, this pandemic is not over. Our case counts have plateaued and the virus is still circulating. Please continue to follow health and safety guidelines so that we can continue our progress. Thank you for your continued support of our community’s health and resilience.

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

State Mask Order Extended

Last Friday, Governor Polis extended the statewide face mask mandate for another 30 days with some additional flexibility for counties in Level Green. In counties that are not at Level Green, including in Larimer County, masks must continue to be worn in all indoor public spaces where 10 or more people who are unvaccinated are gathering. The updated order extends until May 2, and local jurisdictions are still allowed to implement their own restrictions.

County Health

Vaccine distribution is underway in Larimer County, and everyone over the age of 16 is now eligible for a vaccine. We know it will take time for much of our population to receive vaccines, so we need to stay vigilant to Keep NoCo Open and keep our community safe. Find out how you can sign up for a vaccine, and continue to take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask or face covering when outside your home and near others.
  • Stay physically distant when you’re around others (at least 6 feet apart).
  • Wash your hands frequently!
  • Stay home if you’re not feeling well or have been exposed.

Let's continue to work together, take care of each other and Keep NoCo Open!
