Public Health Orders & Guidance
State of Colorado Public Health and Executive Orders
During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone needs to do their part for themselves, their loved ones and our community. We have a responsibility to keep ourselves and each other healthy.
In March 2020, in response to the rise in COVID-19 cases, Governor Polis enacted the "Stay at Home" Executive Order. In April, the Executive Order “Safer at Home” was enacted, allowing for phased re-opening; followed in June by the "Safer at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors" Executive Order.
As we move cautiously toward re-opening, all areas of Clear Creek County, including all municipalities, are currently following the statewide “Safer at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors” Executive Order, which is further guided by Public Health Order 20-28 and the eight Amended versions.
In addition, Governor Polis issued Executive Order D 2020 138 on July 16, 2020 with a statewide requirement for individuals to wear face coverings.
County Public Health Orders and Resolutions
At a July 2, 2020, Special Meeting of the Clear Creek County Board of Health, Resolution 20-04 was passed enacting a Standing Public Health Order requiring face coverings to be worn in Clear Creek County for the protection of Clear Creek County Residents. This decision was made due to the recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, especially in our neighboring states, the influx of tourists during the summer tourist season, and in support of our community-wide effort to stay healthy so we can stay open.
On July 16, 2020, the County Board of Health adopted Resolution 20-05, which made some modifications to the original Order.
Per this amended Order, Clear Creek County businesses shall post signage prepared by Clear Creek County Public & Environmental Health on all business entrances. We have prepared two versions of the Mask Order signage – SIGN 1 is very simple with a mask graphic and SIGN 2 has a bit more detailed verbiage. Businesses can use either or both.

We have also prepared CLEAR CREEK COUNTY COVID-19 FAQs to provide answers to inquiries from individuals and businesses that we have been receiving.
