JCPH Adopts State Executive Order Requiring Use of Face Coverings in Indoor Public Spaces


On July 14, 2020, JCPH issued Emergency Public Health Order 20-005 ordering all individuals in Jefferson County to wear face coverings with certain limited exceptions, in an effort to protect and preserve the public health. Shortly after JCPH Order 20-005 was issued, the Governor of Colorado issued a state-wide Face Covering Order, Executive Order D 2020 138 (EO D 2020 138), which applies to all individuals and businesses in Jefferson County, and which contains restrictions that are substantially similar, though not identical, to JCPH Order 20-005. Executive Order D 2020 138 becomes effective on July 16, 2020 at midnight. 

Because there are differences in the two facial covering orders, individuals and businesses may be justifiably confused about what they may or may not do under both orders. To avoid confusion, JCPH will rescind Public Health Order 20-005. All individuals and businesses within Jefferson County should follow the face covering requirements set forth in the state’s EO D 2020 138.
