The order requires that all persons aged 3 years and older wear face coverings (see section II.- C. of the Public Health Order for full list of mask wearing exceptions.) The order goes into effect tomorrow Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at 12:00 pm.
For the past four weeks, local hospital ICUs have been operating at or above 100% of the level of customary care. Currently, 40% of patients in the ICU have COVID-19. Universal mask wearing can help slow transmission of the virus and relieve local hospitals while more people get vaccinated.
What does this mean for my business?
At this time, there are no requirements for capacity, spacing or contact tracing for businesses to follow. The request from the Larimer Public Health Department is for all businesses to post clearly visible signs at public and staff/employee entrances informing customers, guests, visitors, and employees of the requirement to wear a face covering inside.
Examples of approved signage:
Larimer County Vaccine Verified Facility & Event Program
Larimer County facilities that wish to implement mandatory vaccination policies for staff, patrons, and guests have the opportunity to apply to become an Approved Vaccine Verified Facility and be exempted from the mask requirements with approval from LCDHE. By verifying that 95% of the individuals in their indoor space are fully vaccinated, Approved Vaccine Verified Facilities and Events receive exceptions to Larimer County’s Indoor Mask Order. Facilities can choose to have certain spaces or times of day designated as Vaccine Verified to meet their individual needs. More information about this program can be found at https://bit.ly/larimervaxverified.
