Which Denver metro counties are ending their mask mandates?

Several Denver-area mask mandates will end by Friday, Feb. 4.

DENVER — Leaders of several Front Range cities and counties are deciding this week on whether to extend or end their mask mandates. 

Here's a roundup of where each metro county stands.

City and County of Denver

Denver did not extend its indoor mask mandate, which ended Thursday. City and county leaders announced the decision Monday. 

"Beginning Friday, people will no longer be required under the public health order to wear a mask or show proof of vaccination for entry into a business in Denver," Mayor Michael Hancock said.

The public health order requiring masks to be worn in Denver schools and childcare facilities will remain in place until further notice.

Adams County and Arapahoe County

The Tri-County Health Department board, which covers Adams and Arapahoe counties, voted Monday to let its mask mandates expire after Friday. Face coverings will no longer be required in public indoor spaces, schools and childcare settings.

Cherry Creek School District said Tuesday that they will not renew their mask mandate when it expires Friday. They said starting Monday, "masks will be strongly encouraged, but not required, for students and staff in the Cherry Creek School District."

Adams 12 Five Star Schools said the district will no longer require masks in district schools and buildings starting Saturday. 

Boulder County

Boulder County's mask mandate is in place until further notice. The mandate requires masks in public indoor spaces "during periods of Substantial or High Transmission as displayed on the Boulder County Public Health Status Page." Once Boulder County drops into moderate or low transmission for 21 consecutive days, the mask mandate will automatically be rescinded. 

City and County of Broomfield

Broomfield's mask mandate expired at 11:59 p.m. on Feb 3. 

Douglas County

Douglas County does not have an indoor mask mandate. The Douglas County School District also does not require mask-wearing. 

Jefferson County

The Jefferson County Board of Health voted Thursday to allow the county's mask mandate to expire 12:01 a.m. on Feb. 18. The change does apply to schools, according to a spokesperson.

Larimer County

Larimer County said their indoor mask mandate will expire at 11:59 p.m. Feb. 11, meaning masks will no longer be required starting Feb. 12.

"LCDHE asks residents to be kind and patient in local businesses and schools, some of which might choose to continue to require masks in their facilities," the county said in a news release. 

The Poudre School District said masks are still required in all district facilities.

"We have NOT yet determined what the county's announcement means for PSD's existing protocol requiring masks and will communicate a district decision as soon as possible," the district said in a news release.
