Effective, February 26, at 6 a.m., Jefferson County will move to Level Blue as the county continues to see a downward trend in cases and an increase in vaccination distribution.
The shift to Level Blue comes after the county’s one-week incidence and test positivity rates for COVID-19 have fallen into the designated metrics for this lower level of restrictions, and this trend has been sustained for a full week. In Jeffco, from Feb.17-23, there were a total of 531 cases of COVID-19, or 91.1 per 100,000 residents. Jeffco's test positivity rate has hovered at around 3% and there has also been decreased and stabilized hospitalizations due to COVID-19 during this time.
Under Level Blue, restrictions will ease further, with higher capacity limits on restaurants, gyms, group sports, indoor and outdoor events, manufacturing and more.
