What's Open in Aurora

Visitors and locals should take precautions when stopping by every business. As per recommendations from the State of Colorado, face coverings should be worn by unvaccinated people inside all public indoor businesses (i.e. grocery stores, gas stations, hospitals, restaurants, breweries, casinos, etc.). Although you might be fully vaccinated, each Aurora business is different and might require customers to wear a face-covering at all times when inside the business and also requires customers to comply before entry.

The majority of outdoor spaces are open and ready for public use, however, maintain a 6 ft distance if you are unvaccinated, gatherings in groups of 500 or larger are permitted indoors, and wearing a face covering is strongly recommended if you are unvaccinated. Stay home you are sick or if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days.

Adams County is currently under a "Local Public Health Orders In Place", Level 1 (GREEN) Executive Order site variances set for Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center. Arapahoe County is under a "Local Public Health Orders In Place" Level 1 (GREEN). However, there are currently no restrictions in place, other than for those who remain unvaccinated. Review the state's COVID-19 Dial Page to get additional details and the Safer at Home State of Colorado Page.

Indoor Seated Events

The State has released new guidance for indoor events to allow for "events where individuals are provided reserved seating and/or individuals will remain seated for the duration of the event to be held with a capacity of a maximum of 175 people per room with 6' of distance." SEATED EVENTS**: The capacity cap for Level Blue unseated events is 50% of the posted occupancy limit not to exceed 500 people, whichever is less, per room excluding staff. 6' distancing is required.

If an event involves both a seated and unseated portion, it must calculate capacity for the unseated portion using the Social Distancing Space Calculator, which requires 12' of distance.

There are several requirements that go along with hosting an indoor event! Click here for the complete Indoor Event Guidelines.
