Widespread shutdowns have occurred across Colorado, with restaurants and bars under ordered closure to dine-in patrons for 30 days. During this time, establishments are able to sell food via take-out or delivery. Many breweries around the state continue to sell beer to-go.

Yesterday, the Manitou Incline was shut down due to lack of sanitation options at the attraction. Other natural spots, including National Parks, have been impacted by the outbreak. While some cancelations and service shutdowns have taken place at National Parks, National Parks have waived entrance fees to promote ‘social distancing.”

It was announced that Red Rocks Amphitheatre would be suspending all shows for an extended period of time and that some DMV offices would shut down. Even court cases faced delays.

The serious actions taken by the state in attempt to limit the spread of the new coronavirus have drawn praise and criticism. A common concern that has been voiced is the potential economic impact that will likely result from the shutdown of all restaurants, bars, and gyms across the state.
