Coronavirus Update-Face Coverings Required in JeffcoJuly 15, 2020



Jefferson County Health Department issued an emergency order 7/14/20 requiring cloth face coverings where 6 ft of social distancing is not possible in outdoor public spaces AND indoor spaces, other than personal residences. Masks are so important to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus!
Business must post this requirement for customers. We can help businesses by cooperating, and by wearing masks, we help each other too. Let’s forestall a backslide to shuttered businesses, overwhelmed health care, rising medical bills, sickness and worse. 
DDRC has been abiding by a mask-wearing culture since early spring because we care about protecting the people we serve, our coworkers, and our communities. And now that we are slowly reopening services in new ways, we commit to extra vigilance.
But, you ask, "How should I wear the mask and wash it safely,” or “Are there exceptions to the health order?”
