DENVER (KDVR) – Colorado plans to shut down the state-run COVID-19 Dial system next week and give control of health orders to local authorities. The change will take place on April 16, a government spokesman Jared Polis’ office confirmed on Wednesday.
This means that it will be up to the individual counties, cities or municipalities how to handle responses and restrictions based on COVID-1
“While there have been orders for public health, Colorado has been essentially open since the Stay-at-Home order was lifted last April,” said Shelby Wieman, a spokeswoman for the state of Colorado. “We have used the Dial system to inform individuals about their risks, to protect public health and at the same time provide opportunities for economic activity.
The Dial system will evolve from a state-of-the-art public health order to locally managed and local ordinances on 16 April. Until more Coloradans can get the vaccine, we must all continue to do our part and keep ourselves and each other safe by wearing masks, keeping us six feet apart, and if you choose to gather with others, do it outside in small groups. ”
