Boulder County Public Health is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) comprehensive data tracking system to determine transmission levels. The CDC’s system tracks COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, testing and other metrics to define four levels of community transmission, low, moderate, substantial and high, based on percent of positive tests and the number of cases per 100,000 people. The County Level View displays this information for Boulder County.
Boulder County is currently in:
- High Transmission, which is the highest level of transmission of COVID-19 under the CDC transmission tracker due to the Delta variant. All individuals 2+ are required to wear masks in all indoor settings regardless of vaccination status. View current facial covering requirements and recommendations.
- Masks are required in indoor spaces during periods of substantial and high transmission.
- If Boulder County is in substantial or high transmission status for five consecutive days, masks are required in public indoor spaces.
- Once transmission decreases to moderate or low levels for 21 consecutive days, masks will no longer be required in public indoor spaces. However, individuals may still choose to wear them, and businesses may still implement policies requiring them.

Message from Mayor Larsen – May 8, 2020:
Hello Nederland! Mayor Larsen here with a coronavirus update. All our residents and businesses have done an incredible job over the last seven weeks keeping our town healthy. Starting this weekend, we’re moving into the next phase of our response, Safer at Home. What does that mean for us in the coming weeks? Safer at home is going to look a lot like the last few weeks. Starting this Saturday, the County health order goes into effect meaning that we all have to wear masks anytime we’re out in public, something I know most of us have already been doing. Our restaurants and stores will continue to be open for delivery and curbside to-go orders. Town facilities remain closed, but we can all get out and enjoy the incredible spring weather on our local trails as long as we stay apart from one another. I know that this is a hard time for a lot of us, and that we’re looking forward to the day we can again enjoy everything we love about Nederland without restrictions or the fear of infection. That day is coming, but for now we need to stick together, and support each other by wearing masks and keeping our distance. By doing that, we’ll all get through this and be back to our particular, if slightly skewed, version of normal as soon as possible.
Retail businesses are permitted to be open as long as they can provide social distancing protocols, keep surfaces sanitized, increase ventilation, stagger shifts, and follow the most recent county guidelines listed above.
