As data indicates that the county can move between levels in The Dial, it is important Broomfield stays diligent and continues to follow the 4 Ws: wear a mask, wash your hands, watch your distance, wait on gatherings.
The Dial 2.0 updates will also help Broomfield by reducing the time it takes to move between levels in response to a spike in data. As restrictions are relaxed, it’s critical to continue closely monitoring the data and to act swiftly in response to changes in the COVID-19 conditions.
