On March 25, Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) issued stay-at-home orders for the entire state of Colorado, which supersede Executive Order 2010-013 issued last Sunday, March 22. CDPHE’s Public Health Order implements the directives outlined in the Governor’s Executive Order D 20202 017 and is effective as of 6:00 a.m. MT. The Order will remain in effect until midnight on April 11.

The Order echoes the various stay-at-home orders issued over the past week by several Colorado counties. Under the Order, all Colorado residents must stay at home unless engaging in conduct necessary to provide, support, perform, or operate Necessary Activities, Minimum Basic Operations, Critical Government Functions, and Critical Businesses. All gatherings of any number of people outside the home are similarly prohibited, except where such gatherings fall within four noted travel or activity exemptions. Lastly, the Order requires anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to self-isolate until the symptoms cease or the person obtains a negative test result.
