Message from the Mayor - What Does the Stay at Home Order Mean for You?

Dear Louisville Residents,

I hope you’re doing well today and staying healthy out there! As I’m sure you are well aware, we are currently under an order from Governor Polis to stay at home through April 11th. Below is a list I found helpful that identifies what is permitted and what isn’t while the order is in effect.

Please note this isn’t a comprehensive list of essential activities and services and these may change as the situation continues to evolve. For more information, refer to the order, which includes more details.


  • Getting medical care for you, a family member or your pet
  • Visiting a health care professional
  • Getting medical supplies or medication
  • Going to get groceries, food (via takeout, drive-thru, food banks/pantries) or other essential household items
  • Getting supplies to work from home
  • Picking up materials from your child’s school needed for remote learning (tablet, books)
  • Going outside for physical activity, as long as you stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not in your household and follow social distancing practices – this includes driving to a trailhead
  • Going to work, ONLY if you provide essential products or services at a critical business or organization (health care operations, infrastructure operations and maintenance, government functions) – see the order for more information

Not Permitted:

  • In-person public or private gatherings of any size with people outside of your residence
  • Traveling, except to get or provide essential services or medical care
  • Carpooling with anyone outside of your residence

The City continues to closely monitor the situation and take the appropriate precautions as recommended by Boulder County Public Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. I’d like to remind everyone that while the virus is serious, the majority of individuals who contract it will recover from the disease.

Please remember to comply with all public health orders and stay at home to do our part to help slow the spread. Thanks to the Louisville community for your support during this time!
