The city of Aurora encourages its residents to comply the Stay-at-Home order through May 8 that was extended in Adams and Arapahoe counties by Tri-County Health Department, the local, independent public health authority over Aurora. This is an effort to stem the ongoing high level of COVID-19 virus infection in these counties. Douglas County, where a small number of Aurora residents live, will continue with the governor’s Safer-at-Home order (no businesses operate in the Douglas County portion of Aurora).
Retail businesses in Adams and Arapahoe counties are now allowed to offer curbside pickup and delivery services per Tri-County Health Department’s public health order that extended the state stay-at-home order. Retail businesses in Douglas County also are able to offer curbside pickup and delivery as stated in Gov. Polis’ Safer-at-Home order.
With public health and safety as our top priority, the city of Aurora on April 28 formally adopted the state’s regulations on face coverings for workers in critical businesses and strongly encourage all Aurora businesses to require customers to wear a face covering at all times when inside the business and also encouraging customers to comply. As we move into the Safer-at-Home phase after May 8, this is an important step for keeping our community safe, supporting our local businesses and helping the economy begin to recover.
