Arapahoe County/Greenwood Village Moving to New "RED" Level

Effective Friday, November 20 at 5:00 p.m. the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment released an updated public health order that provides necessary updates to the COVID-19 dial framework.

The order updates Level Red to indicate counties where there is a severe risk of COVID-19 spreading rapidly while allowing some businesses to remain open at very limited capacity. A sixth level, Level Purple: Extreme Risk, was added to dial, representing when hospital capacity risks being breached, which may be indicated by approaching the need for medical crisis standards of care, utilizing alternative care sites, critical shortages of PPE or staff or hospitals approaching 90% of their reported surge capacity.
