I. INTRODUCTION

        As of November 10, 2021, the seven-day case incidence rate of COVID-19 in La Plata County was 416.9 cases per 100,000 residents, which is identified as “High” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the seven-day case incidence rate of COVID-19 in Archuleta County was 658.3 cases per 100,000 residents, which is identified as “High” by the CDC. These figures are the highest incidence rates observed in both counties in calendar year 2021. Not enough people are fully vaccinated to control the pandemic through vaccination alone. In addition, evidence suggests that fully vaccinated individuals may transmit the Delta variant of the virus, which is dominant in Colorado, to others even if they do not develop severe symptoms themselves. Therefore, additional measures are needed to keep our communities safe. The best protection against COVID-19 is to overlap multiple strategies to reduce exposure. These strategies include vaccination, wearing a face covering, physical distancing, holding social gatherings and conducting business outdoors instead of indoors, maximizing indoor ventilation, symptom screening, and hand hygiene. For the purposes of this Advisory, “Public Indoor Space” means any enclosed indoor area that is publicly or privately owned, managed, or operated to which individuals have access by right or by invitation, expressed or implied, and that is accessible to the public, serves as a place of employment, or is an entity providing services. Public Indoor Space does not mean a person’s residence, including a room in a motel or hotel or a residential room for students at an educational facility.
