Safer At Home in Larimer County

To successfully prevent another spike in COVID-19 cases, we must use a combination of strategies, including physical distancing, using cloth face coverings, and a slow and thoughtful re-opening of our community. 

During this "Safer at Home" phase Coloradans will no longer be ordered to stay home, but are still strongly encouraged to do so unless going out is absolutely necessary.  General Measures for Safer at Home Phase:

  • Everyone is should stay home as much as possible, except for necessary activities, jobs, and government functions
  • Face coverings must be worn by employees and customers in a place of business
  • Face coverings should be worn in any public setting and when outdoor areas are busy
  • No gatherings over 10 people and 6 feet of social distance should be maintained
  • Sick people may not go to work and should self isolate for 7 days since symptoms started and at least 72 hours after their fever goes away without fever-reducing medication
  • Avoid travel into or out of the community except for essential activities
  • Playgrounds and playground equipment are closed.

Ongoing decision-making to minimize the impact of COVID-19 is based on the following principles: 

  • Increased ability to conduct testing and contain the virus
  • Additional protections for those who are most at risk for COVID-19
  • The ability of the healthcare system to handle the increased demand
  • Social distancing policies that can be sustainable
  • Ongoing monitoring and evaluation of policies and their impact
