On Wednesday, July 8, the Board of Directors for Tri-County Health Department approved
a face-covering mandate in the three-county area that includes Aurora.
This mandate applies to all individuals while in public indoor spaces, as well as in outdoor spaces where social distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible. There is currently not an effective date for the policy as it is being drafted by Tri-County Health Department.
Colorado may not yet be seeing the big spikes in COVID-19 cases that have been occurring elsewhere in the country, but numbers are trending upward, and residents can follow best practices—social distance, use a face covering and frequently wash their hands or use hand sanitizer—so we can continue on a path of economic recovery. Local municipalities can opt out of this mandate.
Discussion on details for Aurora are in its early stages at the City Council. To stay updated on this topic and more COVID-19 city efforts and response, as well as available resources for businesses and residents, visit AuroraGov.org/COVID-19
