Latest COVID Mitigation and Restrictions Update

  • 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.

  • 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.
