Contact: Adam Kisiel, Summit County Public Affairs Coordinator

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Health issued an amended and restated Public Health Order Wednesday incorporating the most recent CDPHE Public Health Order. The new local public health order contains updates to the mask requirements to align with the CDPHE Public Health Order issued May 31, now that the Governor’s Executive Order regarding mask wearing has expired.

In addition, restrictions on large indoor gatherings and events with more than 500 people have been removed. These events no longer require approval from Summit County Public Health.

The new local public health order takes effect at 12:01 a.m., Thursday, June 3 and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. June 30, unless otherwise extended, amended, or rescinded.

Similar to the expired Governor’s Executive Order the state public health order issued by CDPHE includes the following requirements for face coverings:

  1. Face coverings are required for certain individuals, age twelve (12) and older, in the following settings:
  1. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated students, staff, and visitors to preschool through grade 12 schools (including extracurricular activities) and child care centers and services, including camps, except while participating in outdoor activities;
  2. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated staff of Colorado Department of Motor Vehicle offices;
  3. Repealed;
  4. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated residents, staff, and visitors to Prisons;
  5. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated residents, staff, and visitors to Jails; and
  6. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated patients, visitors, and personnel in emergency medical and other healthcare settings (including hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, urgent care centers, clinics, doctors’ offices, and non-urgent care medical structures).

Summit County is incorporating all the requirements above in the local public health order, in addition to the following additional restrictions, so that the order pertains to individuals age 2-11 that are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine.

  1. Section 1.a. in CDPHE Third Amended Public Health Order 20-38 above shall apply to any individual, age two (2) and older, and
  2. Section 1.a. above shall include recreation sports that fall outside of school, and
  3. CDPHE Third Amended Public Health Order (Exceptions to the Face Covering Requirements) shall apply only to individuals younger than two (2) years of age.

In addition to the face cover changes, all restrictions for large indoor gatherings have been removed from the state and local order.

“We feel that it is important to continue to require face masks in group settings for individuals ages 2-11 years that are not able to receive the protection of the vaccine and are susceptible to COVID-19,” said Public Health Director Amy Wineland. “We know that face coverings are one of the simplest and most effective ways that we can protect ourselves from the virus.”

Contacto:Adam Kisiel, Coordinador de Asuntos Públicos del Condado de Summit 

CONDADO DE SUMMIT - La Salud Pública del Condado de Summit emitió una Orden de Salud Pública modificada y reformulada el miércoles incorporando la Orden de salud pública mas reciente de CDPHE. La nueva orden de salud pública local contiene actualizaciones a los requisitos de cubrebocas para alinearse con la Orden de Salud Pública de CDPHE emitida el 31 de mayo, ahora que la Orden Ejecutiva del Gobernador con respecto al uso de cubrebocas ha expirado.

La nueva orden de salud pública local entra en vigencia a las 12:01 am del jueves 3 de junio y permanecerá vigente hasta las 11:59 pm del 30 de junio, a menos que se extienda, modifique o revoque de otra manera.

Al igual que la Orden Ejecutiva del Gobernador vencida, la orden de salud pública estatal emitida por CDPHE incluye los siguientes requisitos para cubrirse el rostro:

1. Se requieren cubrebocas para ciertas personas, de doce (12) años o más, en los siguientes entornos:

a. Estudiantes no vacunados o no completamente vacunados , personal y visitantes de las escuelas preescolares hasta el grado 12 (incluidas las actividades extracurriculares) y los centros y servicios de cuidado infantil, incluidos los campamentos, excepto mientras participan en actividades al aire libre;

b.Personal no vacunado o no completamente vacunado de las oficinas del Departamento de Vehículos Motorizados de Colorado;

c. Revocado;

d. Residentes, personal y visitantes de las prisiones no vacunados o no completamente vacunados;

e. Residentes, personal y visitantes de las cárceles no vacunados o no completamente vacunados; y

f. Pacientes, visitantes y personal no vacunados o no completamente vacunados en entornos médicos de emergencia y otros entornos de atención médica (incluidos hospitales, centros quirúrgicos               ambulatorios, centros de atención de urgencia, clínicas, consultorios médicos y estructuras médicas de atención no urgente).

El condado de Summit está incorporando todos los requisitos anteriores en la orden de salud pública local, además de las siguientes restricciones adicionales, de modo que la orden se refiere a las personas de 2 a 11 años que aún no son elegibles para recibir la vacuna.

a. Sección 1.a. en la Tercera Orden de Salud Pública 20-38 de CDPHE modificada arriba mencionada se aplicará a cualquier persona, de dos (2) años de edad o más, y la

b. Sección 1.a. antes mencionada incluirá deportes recreativos que son fuera de la escuela, y la

c. Tercera Orden de Salud Pública modificada de CDPHE (Excepciones a los Requisitos de Cubrebocas) se aplicará solo a personas menores de dos (2) años de edad.

Además de los cambios en cubrebocas, todas las restricciones para reuniones grandes en interiores se han eliminado de la orden estatal y local.

“Creemos que es importante seguir requiriendo cubrebocas en entornos grupales para personas de 2 a 11 años que no pueden recibir la protección de la vacuna y son susceptibles al COVID-19”, dijo la directora de salud pública Amy Wineland. "Sabemos que los cubrebocas son una de las formas más sencillas y eficaces de protegernos del virus".
