What to expect
Coronavirus in Colorado Springs
2020 changed everything. The pandemic was unprecedented and we all pivoted to make the best of a bad situation. Anybody else sick to death of those three words? Us too!
There are some words however that we’re not quite over. Namely social distancing, limited capacity and masks. We’ve come a very long way from where we were in 2020, but unfortunately we’re not quite ready to go back to business as usual.
The state of Colorado has been under a mandatory mask order since July 2020, and we don’t expect masks to go away anytime soon. The mandate requires masks in any public indoor space for everyone 10 and over. Many attractions have followed CDC guidelines requiring masks for everyone 2 and up. As more people receive the vaccine, we expect these regulations will lighten, but many businesses will likely still require masks for the remainder of the year.
We’ve also had limited capacity, closures, need for contact tracing and temperature checks. Above you’ll find all the info you need to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun. We’ll keep mask and reservation requirements updated, along with who’s open, and if we have to, who’s closed.
