Simplified COVID-19 Dial

Keep it Up to Keep COVID Down

April 16, 2016

Arapahoe County businesses and residents will follow simplified restrictions issued by the Tri-County Health Department, with the continued goal of controlling and slowing the spread of COVID-19.

The TCHD Public Health Order will be in effect from April 16 through May 15, and highlights include:

  • Phase 1: Moving Toward Full Re-Opening, April 16 - May 15 (30 days): Counties will move to a new level on the Dial, one Level less restrictive than the level indicated by their metrics on April 15. For example, a county at Level Yellow metrics on the current state Dial on April 15 will move to Level Blue on April 16 and remain there until May 15. 
  • Phase 2: Observation Period, May 16 - August 16 (90 days): Counties will move to Level Clear, which has no restrictions, subject to TCHD observation of hospital admission rates in the County. In Level Clear, businesses will be able to operate at 100 percent capacity with no mitigation requirements, although face-covering requirements may still apply.

Arapahoe County and the City of Centennial are at Level Yellow metrics. Learn more on the Tri-County Health website.

  • Plan a family game night with people who already live in your home.
  • Read a good book, listen to music or stream a favorite show.
  • Cook a healthy meal.
  • Get a head-start on spring cleaning.
  • Do arts and crafts — get creative and use what’s available in your home.
