The state of Colorado will move Douglas County to Level Red on the state’s Safer at Home Dial effective Friday, Nov. 20, based primarily on COVID-19 case numbers, positivity, and incidence rate.

Safer at Home Level Red - Severe Risk brings more restrictions to Castle Pines residents and businesses. Download a PDF file summarizing the differences between Level Orange and Red.

This change in Level will impact how we interact with our community:

  • Restaurants: Closed for indoor dining but may offer curbside, takeout and delivery. Outdoor dining allowed only for members of the same household at a table.
  • Alcohol sales for on-premises consumption and take-out must cease by 8 p.m.
  • Social Gatherings: Prohibited unless specifically allowed in a separate category.
  • Indoor Events: Prohibited.

  • Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands
  • Follow social distancing
  • Get a flu shot
