On May 20, Glenwood Springs City Council voted to rescind the local mask order for indoor public-facing spaces in alignment with recent guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Colorado.
“As our community transitions to an honor system, please be respectful of others and follow requests from businesses that may still require masks,” said Public Information Officer Bryana Starbuck.
The state-wide mask executive order encourages any individual aged 11 and older, who is not fully vaccinated, to continue wearing a mask indoors where members of different households are present. Fully vaccinated individuals can go without masks in almost all settings. Masks are still required in certain settings, including in schools for unvaccinated students, teachers, and staff, as well as other settings which are laid out in the executive order.
