Together through this pandemic, the Broomfield community has stepped up to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Now is the time to rally again to protect the health and safety of those unable to get vaccinated, and at much higher risk of contracting and spreading the delta variant - including children 11 and younger.
Broomfield Public Health Issues Indoor Mask Requirement for those ages 2-11 in schools and licensed childcare facilities effective Monday, Aug. 16.
What Does This Mean in Broomfield:
Why Are Masks Required in Schools and Licensed Childcare Facilities?
While the community had hoped the new school year would start without the requirement of masks, this is a necessary mitigation strategy to protect youth until they can be vaccinated. If you are eligible to get a vaccine, please do your part and get vaccinated! Find a vaccination opportunity today at Broomfield.org/COVIDVaccine.
