Teller County to move to Level 3 COVID-19 Restrictions

TELLER COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Teller County will move to Safer At Home Level Orange (high risk) restrictions on Monday, November 16, at 5pm.

That means capacities at many venues and businesses will need to be cut in order to abide by the state's COVID-19 dial guidelines. Under Level 3, capacities are limited to 25%, down from the 50% capacity limits under Level 2.

The county was moved to Level Yellow (concern) back on Monday, November, 9th.

In a press release Saturday, Teller County commissioners expressed concern that the move would be "seriously damaging" to the county.

Under Level Orange restrictions, casinos are required to close. County officials say only 5% of total cases in Teller County have been traced to the Cripple Creek area.

According to Teller County, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is considering a case to allow casinos to remain open, and will report back on Monday.
