Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


Effective Sept. 1: Public Health Order requiring facial coverings in all individuals aged 2 years and older in schools and child care settings. Review the Order and frequently asked questions on our Public Health Order webpage. Complete our COVID-19 school masking form to report your concerns.


Personal Prevention & Protection

Regardless of public health orders, the guidance to protect yourself and your loved ones remains the same. Remember these key best practices:

  • Get vaccinated. It’s one of the best ways to protect yourself and help end the pandemic.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public, especially indoors, even if you are vaccinated
  • Outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor gatherings.
  • Online gatherings are safest, especially for people at high risk of severe illness.
  • Keep 6 feet of distance from people who don’t live with you and have not been fully vaccinated.
  • Wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid large gatherings or crowds, especially indoors, until the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower. Check the state’s guidance by sector for additional recommendations for events and gatherings. 
  • Continue to practice #SafeSix

Everyone in Colorado 12 years and older is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. (Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for children 12-18.) Due to increased supply, many more vaccine appointments are available at local providers. Check with our Vaccine page to see the many options.

Walk-in vaccinations, with no appointment necessary, are available at many locations including the TCHD clinics. You can print a flyer Englishor Spanish with these locations and times..

Guidance for Fully Vaccinated Individuals

>With the highly spreadable Delta variant surging across the Metro Denver area and vaccination coverage increasing slowly, we endorse the new CDC guidance that everyone, including those who are fully vaccinated, wear a mask in public indoor settings.

Returning to the Office or Worksite

  • Many employees may be returning to the worksite after many months. Be sure to check in with your supervisor to understand what precautions you will be required to take onsite at work, and if there is a requirement for vaccination. If you return to work, continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions.
  • Keep these items on hand when returning to work: a mask, tissues, and hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, if possible.
