Montrose County Moves to Level Blue: Caution

Effective immediately, Montrose County will move to Level Blue: Caution on the state’s Dial 2.0. Montrose County Public Health was notified about the move by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

The shift to Level Blue comes after the county’s one-week incidence and test positivity rates for COVID-19 have fallen into the designated metrics for this lower level of restrictions, and this trend has been sustained for a full week.
Under Level Blue, restrictions will ease further, with higher capacity limits on restaurants, gyms, group sports, indoor and outdoor events, manufacturing and more. To see the full list of changes from Level Yellow to Level Blue, please visit

In light of these changes, Montrose County Public Health reminds community members to continue to follow best practices by washing hands or sanitizing frequently, staying home when sick, wearing a mask when necessary, and maintaining physical distance as needed. If you are eligible for a vaccination or interested in being on the standby list, please visit
