Metro Denver counties to lift remaining COVID-19 restrictions with Clear crossing this weekend – fr

Much of the Denver metro will see all remaining county-level COVID-19 public health restrictions lifted this weekend, although people will still need to wear masks in specific indoor environments as order throughout the world. ‘State remains in place at least until next month.
Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder and Broomfield counties confirmed on Tuesday that they will move from Level Blue to a new phase called Level Clear on Sunday.

The Denver public health agency pulled over before entering the crossing at Level Clear, but said the city plans to “line up” with neighboring counties.

At Level Blue, restaurants and gyms can only offer full capacity if a social distance of six feet is possible, while bars can only operate at 25% of capacity, and retail spaces at retail and office space are limited to 75% capacity.
