Tri-County Health Department public health orders to remain in effect past Jan. 3


Given the recent spike in Covid case rates due to the highly contagious Omicron variant, the Tri-County Health Department will extend its public health order around masking in schools and for indoor public spaces throughout the County. The school mask order, which had been set to expire on Jan. 3, 2022, will now run through January. 

The indoor masking order states that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public settings should properly wear masks to help mitigate the transmission of the virus. Covid positivity rates had begun to decline in late-November, but the global emergence of the much more contagious Omicron variant around that time has sharply increased local positivity rates and could potentially place additional stress on the County’s already overburdened hospital systems. Tri-County officials will monitor all Covid-related numbers through January and may amend the indoor masking public health order as conditions warrant. The extensions are consistent with related developments throughout the Denver metro area.

The Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners maintains frequent contact with Tri-County officials about this situation and will provide updates as needed. For more information, visit
