Provide feedback on Colorado’s next phase – A message from the Mayor
Dear Louisville Residents,
On Monday, Governor Polis announced safety guidelines for reopening residential summer camps, bars, indoor and outdoor event venues, and additional guidance related to personal services and other activities starting June 18. Please continue to use good judgement and make the decisions that work for your household. Staying at home as much as possible is still the safest option.
Protect Our Neighbors
Governor Polis also announced the draft framework for Protect Our Neighbors, the next phase of our state’s response to COVID-19, and invited Coloradans to share their feedback by 11:59 PM on June 18. The Governor also emphasized the importance of facial coverings as we manage the spread of COVID-19 and keep our economy and society running.
It remains to be seen when Boulder County will enter the Protect Our Neighbors phase, but we will continue to keep you informed.
Stay home if you are sick
While Colorado is seeing a downward trend in COVID-19 cases, we have recently seen a slight increase in Boulder County, which has been traced back to parties and attendance at recent protests (see below for details). Please continue to keep our community safe by staying home when you’re sick, washing your hands frequently, wearing a facial covering, and practicing social distancing. Remember that offices may now have up to 50% of employees in attendance, but that is a maximum, and people should continue to work from home where possible.
Thank you for continuing to do your part to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Please visit the City’s COVID-19 website for details.
