As of Nov. 13, Douglas County will be moved into “Level Orange” on the state’s dial framework, which is just one step away from “Stay At Home,” or the restriction level put in place by the governor in the spring shortly after the pandemic hit Colorado.

“Level Orange” means greater restrictions, including smaller capacities for gyms, restaurants, events, places of worship and noncritical office spaces.

The decision was made by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment due to a large spike in case numbers and incidence rates in the county.
