Boulder County: Level Clear

Summary of Requirements

  • Under Level Clear, local capacity restrictions and mitigation are no longer required but may be encouraged.
    • Hospitalizations must stay at 0-2 hospital admissions per 100,000 residents for seven consecutive days over a 14-day period.
      • If hospital admissions exceed the rate over a seven-day period, Boulder County will move to a more protective level and apply level restrictions according to the hospitalization rate.
    • Level Clear does not have any capacity restrictions or mandatory mitigation requirements for businesses or gatherings.
    • Masks may still be required under state or local order, and if the state continues any orders, those state restrictions will apply to Boulder County.

Rights & Responsibilities in the Workplace

Legal Resources for Those with COVID-19

Boulder County Public Health cannot provide legal advice and does not endorse any attorney or law firm. Boulder County Public Health is not responsible for the availability of outside resources, nor does Boulder County Public Health endorse, nor is it responsible for, any of the products or services delivered by any outside agency.


Currently, residential care facilities may offer visitation under compassionate circumstances, such as end-of-life situations, and in outdoor environments. There are other circumstances under which indoor visitation must be accommodated, such as to provide support for residents with disabilities and/or for religious exercise, and for long-term care ombudsman and adult protective services.

New state guidance expands visitation opportunities and outlines the requirements for indoor visitation in residential care facilities serving older adults and people with disabilities. Facilities should continue to encourage visits outdoors if weather permits and the resident is able to participate.

  • Facilities must be in compliance with all public health orders prior to implementing this guidance.
  • Residential care providers must routinely evaluate and update their visitation policies and procedures as updated guidance, facility resources, and community spread change.
  • Individual facilities may enact stricter requirements based on their local conditions, but may not waive any of these requirements.
