Gov. Jared Polis has asked the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to move Colorado counties that are currently in Red on the state's COVID-19 dial down to Orange.

Polis shared the following message in a tweet on Wednesday night (Dec. 30):

According to data reviewed by Polis, Colorado has been in a sustained decline for 13 days, and only 73% of beds in intensive care units (ICU) across the state are in use.

In light of the progress the state is making with fighting COVID-19, the governor has requested that CDPHE move all counties in Red on the dial to Orange-level restrictions, effective Monday, Jan. 4.

Under level Orange guidelines, restaurants can operate at 25% capacity with a maximum capacity of 50. Gym capacity also increases to 25% or 25 people indoors per room.
