Colorado’s dial framework has six color levels to provide guidance to counties.
Counties can move back and forth between levels, depending primarily on three metrics.
Levels are based on the number of new cases, the percent positivity of COVID-19 tests, and the impact on hospitals, as well as local considerations. As the dial moves left, toward Protect Our Neighbors, more people can participate in various activities.
This framework gives communities a tool to make life in the pandemic more sustainable.
