Effective Nov. 24 and until Staffed ICU Bed Capacity reaches 10% or higher for 14 consecutive days: Public Health Order requiring face coverings for all individuals 2 years of age and older in public indoor spaces. Review the full order and additional resources on our Public Health Order page. 

Employee Rights

Paid Leave

The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) has created a new website outlining paid leave requirements for Colorado employees. This page will be updated by CDLE regularly. Public Health Emergency Leave is still required until the CDLE notes otherwise on the linked page above.

Civil Rights

For comprehensive information regarding employee Civil Rights, visit the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws webpage, which includes information on masking, testing, vaccination, requests for medical information, and more. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Governor Polis have also provided Civil Rights guidance for employers and businesses.

Vaccination

CDPHE's Workplace Vaccination Program

The state is now offering an on-site Workplace Vaccination Program for employers, unions, and trade associations of any size. There is no charge, and the state coordinates staffing, logistics, and vaccine supplies. Enroll today!

Fully Vaccinated Facilities 

Our current Mask Order includes an exception to masking for Fully Vaccinated Facilities. This is defined as facilities and events that implement a policy requiring all individuals entering their Fully Vaccinated space to show proof of vaccination. Policies must result in 95% of all individuals within their space being fully vaccinated. Businesses, facilities, and events may operate all or part of their indoor spaces as Fully Vaccinated under this program. For more details on this program and information on how to participate, view our guidance for Fully Vaccinated Facilities.

State and Federal Vaccine Mandates 

The CDPHE is tracking state and federal vaccine requirements on their Vaccine Laws and Regulations page and will update as more information becomes available. Visit the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard page for more information on their proposed vaccination and testing requirements in the workplace, including information from the recent Supreme Court decision, policy templates, communication resources, fact sheets, and FAQs.

Report Cases and Outbreaks to TCHD

Businesses in Adams County and Arapahoe County should use our COVID-19 Case Reporting Form for Businesses to report multiple COVID-19 cases in the workplace to us. An investigator will reach out to you to assess potential outbreak status and provide disease control measures to implement in your workplace. This form should not be used by schools or healthcare facilities. If you are a school or healthcare facility please call 303-220-9200. This form should be completed by facility owners/operators/managers, not individual employees. Businesses should not wait to hear from us prior to excluding sick individuals from the workplace and contact tracing to identify and exclude exposed employees. For additional information on addressing cases in the workplace, see the CDC's Case Investigation and Contact Tracing in Non-healthcare Workplaces: Information for Employers. Download our Template Line List for a resource to assist with information gathering for your case investigation and contact tracing.

Businesses in Douglas County should report cases and outbreaks by emailing DCcovid19@joganhealth.com or calling 720-412-4739.
