[ARCHIVED] Jan. 4: Red level counties move to Orange level

Effective Jan. 4, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has allowed local public health agencies with counties in the Red level on the State's dial to move to the Orange level. With this change, Douglas County is now in the Orange level. 

Colorado public health agencies determine a county's dial level by metrics, as well as other public health considerations:

  • Number of new cases
  • Percent positivity of COVID tests
  • Impact on hospitalizations
