Larimer County has been placed at Level 4 (Red) on Colorado’s Dial framework, which standardizes different levels of “openness” at the county level. The Dial is a tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic more sustainable, allowing us to balance, to the greatest extent possible, controlling the virus with our social and economic needs.
- Colorado’s dial framework has six levels to guide county response to COVID-19.
- Counties move back and forth between levels, depending on three metrics.
The metrics for Level Red are as follows:
- New COVID-19 cases are at an incidence of greater than 350 per 100,000 in a two week period;
- The percent of positive results over a rolling 14-day average is greater than 15%; and
- Hospitalization rates are increasing in the preceding 14 day period.
