COVID-19

 

Jefferson County moves to Level Blue on state's COVID-19 Dial 2.0 (effective Feb. 26 at 9 a.m.)

 

State COVID-19 Dial Dashboard

The State of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment maintains a COVID-19 Dial Dashboard to indicate levels of "openness" at the county level based on local conditions. Access the dashboard. Learn more about the dashboard here. 

COVID-19 Testing

Starting Tuesday, Jan. 12, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Mako Medical, the city opened a COVID-19 testing site that is FREE to the public. The testing site is located on the northwest corner of Westminster Blvd and Promenade Drive (about 106th and Westminster Blvd). It is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. While walk-ins are welcome, pre-registration is highly encouraged to reduce wait time.

COVID-19 Vaccine

The State of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) expects that the initial supply of COVID-19 vaccines will be very limited for several months. This means that a vaccine will not be immediately available to everyone who wants one. To be as fair and efficient with distribution as possible, the state has developed a phased approach to vaccine distribution to save lives and end the crisis that has been brought on by the pandemic as quickly as possible. By vaccinating people who are most likely to get COVID-19 first, we can keep more Coloradans safe. 

Face Covering Resolution and Public Health Orders

The State of Colorado, Jefferson and Adams counties currently have orders in place requiring face coverings.

Governor Polis issued Executive Order D 2020 190 and Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) issued Public Health Order 20-008 requiring face coverings in public indoor settings. Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) has a public health order in place mandating face coverings in public indoor settings when unable to maintain six foot social distancing. 

Westminster City Council passed a face covering resolution on May 11, 2020 requiring all people three years and older, who are medically able, to wear a non-medical, cloth face covering in local businesses or outdoors when social distancing is not possible. This resolution has been terminated effictive April 12. State and local mask mandates remain in effect.

These public health orders mean that, when in Westminster, people three years and older, who are medically able, are required to wear a non-medical, cloth face covering in public indoor spaces when social distancing is not possible.

Facility Reopenings

City staff are taking a measured approach to reopening city facilities, which is happening gradually following the end of counties' extended Stay-at-Home orders. Please see the chart below, which will be updated as municipal facilities open.
