Jeffco is under the state’s Safer-at-Home order.

Under the state’s Safer-at-Home order (amended May 26), residents are no longer ordered to stay home, but are strongly advised to stay at home. Critical businesses are open and many non-critical businesses are operating with restrictions. Everyone should be prepared for state and local public health orders to be extended, amended or changed as needed to protect public health. Visit CDPHE’s Safer-at-Home page for more information and answers to frequently asked questions.

Guidance for Our Community

Everyone must take these actions:
  • Stay home as much as possible, leaving only for a limited number of specific activities.
  • Vulnerable people at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19, such as older adults, should continue to follow Stay-at-Home guidance, which means only leaving home for medical care and essential activities.
  • When you go out, follow physical distancing requirements (6 feet of space between yourself and others).
  • Do not go to work if you are sick.
  • People who have COVID-19 symptoms should get tested, and must isolate unless they have a negative test result. As the state works to build up testing capacity, self-isolating when you are ill is the best course of action. Please read how to isolate.
  • Only travel in- or out-of-state for essential purposes.
  • Individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a non-medical face covering when leaving home.
