Because Adams County incidence rates of COVID-19 are almost double the level needed to stay in Level 2 of Safer at Home and hospitalizations are rising statewide, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will move the county to Level 3 of Safer at Home on the state’s dial in hopes to quickly reduce the spread of the virus. This change will take effect at 5 p.m. on Oct. 28.
There is a provision in the order for Critical Government Functions, which states the operation and support of state and local government functions, including federal, state, and local elections, shall continue.
Adams County’s Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) will remain open on their normal operating schedules and in-person voting is available now through Election Day.
