Dine-in: open with strict precautions

Take out/delivery preferred

Effective 7/23/2020 at 10pm, the State is suspending all alcohol sales after 10:00pm each day. This will apply to all entities that are licensed to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption. "Nothing in this Executive Order prohibits on-premises licensees licensed under Articles 3 or 4 of Title 44 of the Colorado Revised Statutes who have delivery privileges from making alcohol beverage sales for delivery after 10:00 P.M. but takeout alcohol beverage sales are not permitted after 10:00 P.M.," the Executive Order reads.

Restaurants are encouraged to, continue with take-out and curbside food and alcohol services per PHO 20-28 and the Safer at Home Phase. Larimer County believes these establishments may open for limited in-person service with restrictions.

No restaurant may operate dine-in service until they can meet and maintain all the applicable requirements in the re-opening checklist, found here.

No reopening inspections are required prior to a restaurant reopening provided they meet and maintain all requirements in this checklist.

  • As of 6/18/2020- If a special event (e.g. live music) will be taking place at a restaurant that will attract more than the dine-in capacity/seating arrangement, restaurants will need to follow the guidance and checklists for Indoor Events and Outdoor Events. Special live music or entertainment may be provided if all requirements in these checklists are met and a plan is submitted for review and approval of the event.
  • Employees must be educated in the requirements in the checklist and understand how these measures help to reduce the transmission and spread of COVID-19. 
  • The completed checklist must be posted either at the main entrance or inside the establishment with other required labor and employment postings. 
  • Enforcement will be handled on a complaint basis. You do not need to submit this form to the Larimer County Health Department unless asked to do so. If an inspector enters your facility, you will need to show how the measures included in this checklist are being complied with.
  • This information could be updated with additional guidance and information released by the state.
  • Expansion of outdoor seating areas may require permits from the local building, fire or liquor licensing authority. Contact these agencies prior to any plans for the expansion of outdoor seating areas.
  • For facilities with mixed uses, such as a food establishment inside a gym, the guidelines that apply to each portion of the business must be followed.

Those at risk of severe illness with COVID-19

We understand that restrictions on religious services, in particular, have a significant impact on communities, congregations and organizations – religiously, spiritually, morally, and emotionally. We encourage gatherings to be done remotely by webinar, teleconference, social media, and telephone to reduce the risk of exposing congregants to illness.

  • Those who are over age 65
  • Those who have chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
  • Those who have serious heart conditions
  • Those who are immunocompromised
  • Those who are pregnant

Now that COVID-19 is present in our community, we recommend that those who are at higher risk of severe illness with COVID-19 minimize their contact with people outside of their household in the community.
