What does that mean for you? The 5 Star program encourages businesses to implement safety measures beyond what is already required by public health orders and guidelines that will help stop the spread of COVID-19. In doing so, businesses will be able to accelerate their reopening. In summary, it allows our county’s certified businesses to be eligible for less restrictive capacity caps while reassuring employees and customers that businesses are adhering to enhanced guidance.
El Paso County 5 Star Program Highlights:
The program is available to restaurants/breweries/bars, gyms/fitness centers, personal services & indoor events
Once certified, a business can enjoy increased capacity limits at one level higher on the state's COVID-19 dial framework
The program is voluntary and there is no cost to apply for certification
