The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has approved El Paso County's Multi-Sector Variance Request.

Late Monday, El Paso County received news that both the multi-sector variance request submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) on June 9 and the increased capacity variance request submitted on June 24 were approved almost in their entirety, effective immediately.

Here are some key takeaways from both approved variances:

SPECIFIED BUSINESSES AND ACTIVITIES can now operate at a capacity up to the lesser of 50 percent occupancy or 175 people per confined indoor space. (Includes gyms, athletic training facilities, Indoor Water Park at Great Wolf Lodge, theaters, indoor malls, libraries, restaurants, indoor private events such as receptions and business meetings, indoor attractions such as museums and art galleries, and indoor recreation activities such as park nature centers, bowling alleys, ice rinks, laser tag, indoor gun ranges, escape rooms, and Nerfgun battles.)

SPECIFIED OUTDOOR BUSINESSES AND ACTIVITIES can now operate at a capacity up to the lesser of 50 percent occupancy or 250 people per designated activity (Includes outdoor attractions such as outdoor museums and the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, outdoor recreation activities such as paintball, miniature golf courses, and go-kart tracks, and outdoor private events such as receptions and family reunions)

Amusement parks, such as Cave of the Winds and Santa’s Workshop are NOT included. We are seeking further clarification from CDPHE.

SHUTTLES, BUSES AND VANS must continue operating at the lesser of 50 percent capacity or the maximum that can be accommodated with six-foot distancing.
