BOULDER COUNTY, CO — Two new public health orders were issued Wednesday in Boulder County after a drop in coronavirus cases.
One order limits gathering sizes for people ages 18 to 22 years old, and the other order provides guidance for collegiate group homes.
“We are so pleased that the number of new COVID-19 cases in this age group has dropped significantly,” said Jeff Zayach, Boulder County Public Health executive director.
“Thank you to every single young adult in our community who has been following this order, on top of all of the other behavior changes we’ve asked of you. Your actions have made a difference!”
The county’s first order outlines four levels for gatherings for 18 to 22-year-olds:
No gatherings at all
Private gatherings of six people
Attendance at regulated events
Gathering sizes permitted under the state dial level for Boulder County
