    What Is Boulder’s Current COVID-19 Safety Level? 

    • Boulder County Covid DialBoulder County's current safety status is rated Level Blue on the Covid dial. Health officials expect to transition to the least-restrictive Level Clear on May 16, 2021, for a 90-day observation period.
    • Face coverings are required in Boulder County for those 11 years and older in indoor public spaces. In some cities and counties in Colorado that are less populated, masks are not required indoors, but most counties in the metropolitan area surrounding Denver (including Boulder County) are still mandated to enforce mask-wearing.

    • A large event is any indoor or outdoor event or gathering with more than 10 and up to 500 attendees.
      • Indoor unseated events may operate at 50% or up to 175 people, whichever is less.
      • Outdoor seated and unseated events may operate at 100% capacity or up to 500 people with 6 feet distancing.
    • For any large event, there must be 6 feet of distance between parties.
