Masks are back and mandatory indoors beginning October 20, 2021 as issued by the Health Dept for Larimer County. With rising cases and full hospitals, it was only a matter of time before the announcement was made.
The new public health order, released Friday afternoon by the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment (LCDPHE), calls on everyone aged 3 and up to wear face masks in all indoor public spaces starting at 12 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, regardless of vaccination status.
As reported by Denver 7 News:
County health officials said Friday local hospital ICUs have been operating at or above 100% capacity for the past month. Currently, 40% of patients in the ICU have COVID-19 and 90% of those are unvaccinated. Their hope is that universal mask wearing will help slow transmission of the highly virulent delta variant until more people get vaccinated.
“Larimer County hospitals are being overburdened and we cannot allow this to continue indefinitely,” said Larimer County Public Health Director Tom Gonzales in a prepared statement. “Our hospitals need relief so they can swiftly and adequately treat all urgent medical needs in our community. Universal mask-wearing is the next best prevention tool we have to reduce the strain on our hospitals.”
Data from the Larimer County COVID-19 dashboard shows 35% of the county has yet to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The data also shows the county reported an average of 250+ cases per 100,000 people over the past month.
LCDPHE officials said the public health order will remain in place until the county has met the following metrics for 21 consecutive days:
1. Less than 65 COVID-19 patients in Larimer County hospitals
2. ICU capacity at less than 90% of usual and customary levels
3. A 7-day case rate of less than 300 cases per 100,000 people.
4. A 7-day positivity rate of less than 10%.
Larimer County will become the fifth Colorado county to reinstate mask mandates as cases of the novel virus continue to increase across the state due to the highly transmissible delta variant.
