Safe Travel FAQs

Visit Aurora is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to our small businesses, hotels, restaurants as well as meetings and events. As we work to follow the regulations set forth by the State, we are taking into account information provided by the City of Aurora, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, and the CDC.

As our destination transitions to a Safer At Home order (now extended through June 30, 2020), it is important to understand critical businesses are open, while non-critical businesses can begin to open with certain restrictions.

What's Open in Aurora

Visitors and locals should take precautions when stopping by every business. As per recommendations from the City of Aurora, face coverings for workers should be worn in critical businesses (i.e. grocery stores, gas stations, hospitals). The city also strongly encourages all Aurora businesses to require customers to wear a face covering at all times when inside the business and also encouraging customers to comply.

The majority of outdoor spaces are open and ready for public use, however, maintain a 6 ft distance, do not gather in groups larger than 10, and wearing a face covering is strongly recommended.

Effective June 4th, 2020, the Safer at Home and in the Vast Great Outdoors Public Health Order will allow the following personal recreation and outdoor recreation activities:

Parks, Open Spaces, Swimming Pools
