CDPHE moves The City of Sheridan/Arapahoe County to Blue - Safer at Home Level: Caution

Safer at Home Level Caution 

City of Sheridan/Arapahoe County to Comply with Tri-County Public Health Order

On April 16, 2021, the COVID-19 Dial issued by Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will expire, and counties across Colorado can issue their own guidance for their citizens. On April 8, 2021, the Tri-County Health Department’s Board of Health (BOH) authorized and directed the Executive Director of Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) to issue a Public Health Order (PHO) for a simplified version of the Dial, with the goal to continue to control and/or slow the spread of COVID-19.

The TCHD Public Health Order will be in effect from April 16 through May 15. Arapahoe County will comply with this updated PHO. Highlights of the order include:

  • Phase 1: Moving Toward Full Re-Opening, April 16 - May 15 (30 days): Counties will move to a new level on the Dial, one Level less restrictive than the level indicated by their metrics on April 15. For example, a county at Level Yellow metrics on the current state Dial on April 15 will move to Level Blue on April 16 and remain there until May 15. 
  • Phase 2: Observation Period, May 16 - August 16 (90 days): Counties will move to Level Clear, which has no restrictions, subject to TCHD observation of hospital admission rates in the County.  In Level Clear, businesses will be able to operate at 100 percent capacity with no Mitigation Requirements, although face-covering requirements may still apply.

To enhance personal safety and help reduce levels of COVID-19 transmission across our communities, our residents should continue to  social distance; wear masks in public indoor areas; avoid large gatherings or crowds, especially indoors; stay home while they are sick and get tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms; wash their hands often; and get vaccinated as soon as possible. 

COVID-19 Vaccines

Vaccination distribution and prioritization plans are made at the state level and passed through the local health authorities to carry out. For Arapahoe County, that health authority is the Tri-County Health Department. To get the latest vaccination updates, please visit
