COVID-19 Information and Updates

Current Status: Level Clear

On May 16th, Boulder moved to Level Clear, and entered into a 90-day observation period until the most recent Public Health Order. To remain at Level Clear, new hospital admissions for COVDI-19 must stay below an average of 2 per day per 100,000 residents for seven consecutive days as observed over a 14-day period.

Things to note:

  • If admissions exceed the rate over a seven-day period, Boulder County will move to a more protective level and apply restrictions accordingly.
  • The state is renewing the 500+ limit indoors until June 1. After this date, Level Clear may not have any capacity restrictions or mandatory mitigation requirements for businesses or gatherings.
    • A large event is any indoor or outdoor event or gathering with more than 500 attendees.
      • Indoor unseated events and entertainment may operate at 50% or up to 175 people.
      • Outdoor seated and unseated events and entertainment may operate at 100% capacity with 6 feet distancing.
    • For any large event, there must be 6 feet of distance between parties.
  • Boulder County has updated its mask mandate to align with the state’s new mask rules, with few exception:
    • Masks are still required for all healthcare, jails, schools, congregate care facilities, and public transportation, and where 100 or more unvaccinated people or individuals of unknown status are in a room located in a public indoor space.
    • Boulder County still recommends masks in all public-facing places and lower-risk, semi-public settings depending on group size and vaccination status.
    • For non-vaccinated individuals, it is recommenced that they wear masks outdoors if social distancing cannot be maintained.

A full list of Boulder County guidelines can be found on Boulder County Public Health COVID-19 Dial Page.

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.

Nederland Downtown Development Authority is serving as the point-of-contact for the local businesses.
