Open for business

More than half of Colorado’s 64 counties will move to the less-restrictive Level Orange on Colorado’s COVID-19 dial on Monday, which, among other things, will allow restaurants to serve customers indoors.

Restaurants in counties going from Level Red to Level Orange will be able to serve at a 25% capacity or 50 people, whichever is lower.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis made the late-night announcement last week that the 33 counties in Level Red would move to Level Orange.

There is still some uncertainty because of the 5-Star State Certification program that allowed qualifying businesses to stay open at higher capacity.

The program allows businesses to operate at one level lower. So businesses in counties moving to Level Orange can operate under Level Yellow restrictions.

Besides indoor dining, last call is moved to 10 p.m. on premises under Level Orange, though bars remain closed.

Gym capacity will also increase to 25% or 25 people indoors per room under Level Orange and offices can operate at 25%, though remote work is strongly encouraged.
