Arapahoe County to Comply with Tri-County Public Health Order
On April 16, 2021, the COVID-19 Dial issued by Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will expire, and counties across Colorado can issue their own guidance for their citizens. On April 8, 2021, the Tri-County Health Department’s Board of Health (BOH) authorized and directed the Executive Director of Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) to issue a Public Health Order (PHO) for a simplified version of the Dial, with the goal to continue to control and/or slow the spread of COVID-19.
The TCHD Public Health Order will be in effect from April 16 through May 15. Arapahoe County will comply with this updated PHO. Highlights of the order include:
- Phase 1: Moving Toward Full Re-Opening, April 16 - May 15 (30 days): Counties will move to a new level on the Dial, one Level less restrictive than the level indicated by their metrics on April 15. For example, a county at Level Yellow metrics on the current state Dial on April 15 will move to Level Blue on April 16 and remain there until May 15.
- Phase 2: Observation Period, May 16 - August 16 (90 days): Counties will move to Level Clear, which has no restrictions, subject to TCHD observation of hospital admission rates in the County. In Level Clear, businesses will be able to operate at 100 percent capacity with no Mitigation Requirements, although face-covering requirements may still apply.
To enhance personal safety and help reduce levels of COVID-19 transmission across our communities, our residents should continue to social distance; wear masks in public indoor areas; avoid large gatherings or crowds, especially indoors; stay home while they are sick and get tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms; wash their hands often; and get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Phase 1 will take effect at 12:01 a.m. on April 16, 2021, and expire at 11:59 p.m. on May 15, 2021.
Arapahoe County will be at Level Blue – Caution,
as of Friday, April 16, 2021 and 5 Star Certified Business may operate at Safer Level Blue - Caution.
Here are The Ice Ranch’s key guidelines to operate at Level Blue – Caution:
- Reservations are encouraged for all services. Reservations are not available for Public Skate at this time.
- Allowed to operate at 50% of posted capacity limit, not to exceed one hundred seventy-five (175) people excluding staff, whichever is less, per room and maintaining 6 feet social distancing between non-household contacts as is the standard measure.
- Organized recreational youth or adult league games have a 50 person maximum for indoor settings unless they have an approved variance or contract from the CDPHE.
- Contact and scrimmaging allowed in recreational youth league games, but discouraged otherwise.
- One (1) spectator is permitted per participant. Spectators must wear a facial mask, check-in with the front desk and maintain social distancing of 6 feet between non-household contacts.
- Maintain contact information and reservation lists and be prepared to support local public health contact tracing efforts if exposures occur. The Ice Ranch currently has each on-ice participant sign-in, answer health screening questions and take a temperature scan. Every individual entering the building receives a temperature scan.
- Do not share snacks or water, except in emergency situations.
- Do not share personal equipment such as sticks, gloves, helmets, etc.
- Practice social distancing of 6 feet from other households during drop off/pick up of players.
- Masks are necessary while inside The Ice Ranch (i.e. by coaches, by players, by parents). Coaches are required to wear masks while on the ice.
- Celly’s Bar & Grill is limited to 75 people. Curbside and takeout services are available. Alcohol to-go sales must be completed by 2:00 AM.
Restaurant business hours are:
Monday – Friday 4:00 PM – 2:00 AM
Saturday & Sunday 11:00 AM – 2:00 AM
These guidelines are in effect until May 15, 2021 and Arapahoe County moves to Phase 2 as described above, or they see fit to make changes based on metric numbbers.
Individual ice renters will receive specific details that pertain to their ice rental.
In addition, everyone should continue to take these preventative actions to protect themselves as well as others in their family and community:
- Wear a non-medical mask or face covering when away from your home, particularly in indoor settings where social distancing is difficult.
- Stay at least six feet away from others if you must go out.
- If you have symptoms of COVID-19, isolate yourself and contact your health care provider.
- Do not go to work or other public spaces if you are sick.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
