Comments: At this time (May, 28, 2020) Larimer County is still in a pandemic response and Public Health Orders are changing frequently and unknown for October 2020. Public Health (PH) Orders currently do not allow for group outdoor recreation and public gatherings over 10 people. Larimer County’s Variance Request to the PH Order would potentially allow 11-50 people to gather if the event coordinator can demonstrate compliance with social distancing and other criteria via a written plan approved by the Emergency Operations Center-EOC. The form to complete the plan is available on the Larimer County Coronavirus (COVID-19) website provided below.

Please continue to monitor Larimer County's Coronavirus (COVID-19) response website for local restrictions that may differ from the Governor and Colorado Department of Public Health.
