Level Blue for Garfield County: 

Starting at 6 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, Garfield County will officially be dropped to the less-restrictive level “blue” on the state’s COVID-19 dial metric, as announced by Governor Jared Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health And Environment.

The less-restrictive Blue metric allows businesses — including bars, restaurants and gyms, among others — to operate at 50% capacity or at a 175-person maximum limit. Meanwhile, bars and restaurants in the county can now extend last call to 12 a.m.

According to the directive given by Garfield County Board of County Commissioners, Garfield County will be enforcing up to Level Blue on the COVID-19 dial with variances in place.

The Garfield County variances in English and Spanish are listed on the COVID orders/resources page on the Garfield County website.

Limiting the disease’s spread is encouraged by having residents & visitors practice safety guidelines of wearing masks, washing their hands often, limiting travel as much as possible, and above all, staying home when ill.

Glenwood Springs Attractions and Retail Shops are open as existing variances remain in place!

United to Stop the Spread | Unidos Paremos El Contagio

This county-wide initiative is aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19 to keep our valleys safe and open. It will take us all of us doing our part to make this happen.


It’s time to act now before it’s too late to save our ski season. At this point it’s on us – if we don’t do something the State of Colorado could be forced to close ski mountains, hot springs and beloved attractions, causing the collapse of many struggling mountain businesses. We have to change our behavior today to quickly reduce COVID transmission. And we can!


By now we all know what social distancing is. Let’s pledge to stop COVID spread by following the prevention guidelines published by health and government leaders. Limit contact to your family or household unit.
