COVID-19 Information

Broomfield is at Level Red: Severe Risk on the State's Dial, Effective Nov. 20, 2020

News & Important Updates

  • November 30: Broomfield Community Update
  • Broomfield Moves to Level Red: Severe Risk Per State Orders

    The State moved the City and County of Broomfield, along with several neighboring counties, to Level Red: Severe Risk on the updated COVID-19 Dial Framework, effective Nov. 20, 2020, due to the concerning COVID-19 conditions and the anticipated surge on hospital capacity. 


    As described in this letter, the State requires Broomfield to implement the following restrictions, also listed here, across all sectors as described in the updated Public Health Order, as amended. 

    • Personal gatherings outside of your own household are prohibited

    • Restaurants: In-person dining prohibited. Outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery services may continue with last call for on-premise alcohol services at 8 p.m.

    • Gyms/Indoor Recreation Services: Limited to 10% or ten people per room, reservations required

    • Indoor Events: Prohibited

    • Non-Critical Office-Based Businesses: Reduced to 10% of employees working in-person

    • Critical and Non-Critical Retail: May operate at 50% capacity with dedicated hours for at-risk populations. Curbside services encouraged.

    • There are no changes to places of worship, personal services (e.g.: salons), non-critical manufacturing, limited health care settings (e.g.: acupuncture), or outdoor events and these sectors will operate under the same restrictions as Level Orange. 

A re-evaluation with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is planned the week of Dec. 18. At that time, they will review Broomfield’s metrics and determine if fewer or additional restrictions will be necessary.

Additionally, as a proactive measure, Broomfield’s City and County Buildings are once again operating under a ‘By Appointment’ model to further prevent the spread and to protect the health and safety of our community and employees. While open only for limited in-person appointments, the community is encouraged to look for enhanced programs and services available to support residents during these tough times. 

    • More virtual programs & classes 
    • More curbside pickup options & activities 
    • Continued appointments at the recreation centers and pools 
    • Continued essential delivery services for seniors and vulnerable populations
    • Continued public services at the Broomfield Library with slightly reduced hours (Monday - Thursday 10 a.m.- 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. with a daily closure from 1 p.m.- 2 p.m. for cleaning) 


You can help stop the spread and reduce restrictions by limiting in-person interactions to your household, following the 3W’s (Wear a mask, Watch your distance, and Wash your hands), and if you have symptoms or think you may have been exposed, following isolation and quarantine safety precautions

The state sets capacity limits for counties based on the Dial Framework, and where a county falls in the Dial Framework is determined by key metrics.
