Arapahoe County Commissioners urge residents, businesses to comply with updated guidelines


We know these are challenging and confusing times. Now that the calendar is turning to May, we’ve seen some changes in the public health orders that we lived with through April. We applaud everyone for doing their best to comply with guidelines from health officials and governments alike, including ours.

As you probably know, the Tri-County Health Department has decided to extend the state’s initial stay-at-home order through May 8. Tri-County made this decision after the health department determined the COVID-19 case data within Adams and Arapahoe Counties have not yet dwindled enough to loosen the restrictions we’ve been living under for the past month. There are some exceptions to the updated order, particularly for certain non-essential retailers that can offer curbside service.

The Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners is acutely aware of the criticisms and concerns people have about these decisions. The Board’s primary goal right now is to keep balancing our economic needs with the safest and most sensible ways to transition the county to Safer at Home, consistent with the governor’s public health order. As we return to our new normal, it will be important for everyone to keep following practices—including social distancing, wearing face coverings around others, and staying at home whenever possible—that help reduce the spread of coronavirus in our communities.

For more information about the latest developments, please visit our website and review guidelines from Tri-County and the state. We thank you again for your patience, understanding and cooperation, and we will continue to update you as new information arises.
