While there is no current mask mandate for vaccinated people as of August 2021, most public, indoor businesses are encouraging masks even for those who are fully vaccinated.
Masks are still required in certain settings, including in schools for unvaccinated students, teachers, and staff, as well as other settings which are laid out by the state of Colorado
Unvaccinated people over age 11 are encouraged to continue wearing masks in all public, indoor spaces where members of different households are present.
Local communities and businesses may have additional mask restrictions. Please check with individual organizations prior to visiting.
Everyone must still wear masks on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. This is required by federal law for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
We recommend that each person in your party have a mask on hand and check with each location prior to or upon arrival.
