Colorado Springs COVID-19 Updates: Resources and Travel Recommendations

Governor Polis issued a statewide mask mandate for Colorado. Details of the order can be found here

Colorado Springs in El Paso County is transitioning out of the "Safer-at-Home" phase of its COVID-19 response, which allows for expanded reopening of businesses that adhere to strict social distancing and safety guidelines, including dine-in service at restaurants. Trails, parks and open spaces are open and many outdoor recreation activities are available. Most attractions are also open. We recommend keeping your plans fluid, researching county restrictions before you travel and becoming familiar with reservation cancellation policies. 

You can find the CDC Toolkit for Domestic Travelers here.
