The 5 Star Program allows approved restaurants and other businesses to have less restrictive capacity caps, and allows them to operate at one level below their county's level on the state's COVID dial.
For a business to qualify, they must implement all required public health measures to protect customers and staff from COVID-19, and they must be inspected by program staff.
The Boulder County 5 Star Certification website provides instructional videos, sample inspection checklists, resources, and more.
