Broomfield’s COVID-19 Dial framework metrics have met the threshold for “Level Blue: Cautious” on the Dial, and as such, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has moved Broomfield to “Level Blue: Cautious” effective today, Feb. 22. This move to a less restrictive level on the statewide COVID-19 Dial is a result of the ongoing commitment of the community to practice the 4Ws (Wear your mask, Watch your distance, Wash your hands, and Wait on gatherings). This is a great accomplishment by our community, and Broomfield needs to stay committed to these preventative measures in order to stay in “Level Blue: Cautious” and keep Broomfield open.What changes in “Level Blue: Cautious”: • Broomfield Library: remain at 50% with at-risk hours still in place • Broomfield Depot and Vets Museum: remain at 50% capacity• Broomfield Auditorium: remain at 50% capacity for in-person shows and continue to utilize live streaming capacity • Paul Derda Recreation Center and Broomfield Community Center, as Back to Business certified businesses, will operate in “Level Blue: Cautious.” • The Community at Large: • Businesses/facilities that can operate at 50% capacity: • Restaurants - with up to 175 people indoors; 225 people for large venues using the calculator.
