Level Red COVID-19 Restrictions Issued for 15 Colorado Counties
Announced on Tuesday, November 17th, the state is moving the city to a higher level of restrictions but stopped short of ordering another stay-at-home order, we will be moving to a Level Red classification on the COVID-19 dial beginning Friday, November 20th.
On Tuesday, Gov. Jared Polis, Mayor Michael Hancock and other lawmakers announced the new rules, which apply to Denver and 14 other counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Douglas, Jefferson, La Plata, Logan, Mesa, Morgan, Routt, Summit and Washington. The new temporary restrictions will ban dining inside restaurants — takeout and delivery will still be available — and will limit capacity in gyms to 10 percent. Bars and restaurants will hold last call at 8 p.m. under the new level of restrictions, though a city spokesperson said Denver is still waiting for an official directive from the state.

- Be sure to wipe down any surfaces touched with disinfecting wipes, at the end of each showing, including the lockbox and key
- Listing agents be sure to keep your clients informed as possible and to minimize the amount of surfaces contacted during showings, consider having your clients turn on lights, opening doors to closets, cabinets, etc.
- Consider using technology (Matterport, Virtual Tours, FaceTime and/or Zoom) to reduce the amount of in-person showings.
