Summit County Updates 5 Star Program Guidelines to Align with Dial 2.0

Contact: Nicole Valentine, Director of Communications

SUMMIT COUNTY - The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Governor’s office last week announced a new State COVID-19 Dial.  The DIAL is the tool that drives what COVID-19 mitigation protocols must be in place based on COVID-19 activity in each county.  The new dial is called Dial 2.0 and it went into effect on Saturday, Feb. 6.

The new Dial 2.0 will allow 5 Star facilities to operate in Yellow level capacities sooner than the original dial framework. 5 Star businesses in Summit County will be eligible to operate in Yellow once the county has met Orange Level metrics for 7 days. This means 5 Star businesses could operate in Yellow on Saturday, Feb. 13, if our numbers remain in Orange this week.

Summit County and each of the towns will be re-issuing 5 Star business permits this week to reflect these changes.  The Summit County 5 Star webpage is updated to reflect current operating options for 5 Star businesses.  Summit County Public Health will send emails to all certified businesses to notify if and when any changes to operational capacities will occur.  

The 5 Star program is currently open to qualifying Restaurants and Personal Recreation (incl. gyms and fitness centers) businesses.  This week Personal Services businesses will also be eligible.  Personal Services includes barber shops, hair and nail salons, body art studios, pet groomers, etc.

“We have reviewed data regarding the safety of Personal Services, when masks are worn and physical distancing protocol is in place, and feel that this sector would be able to operate very successfully with further reopening measures under the 5 Star Program guidelines,” said Commissioner Josh Blanchard. “We certainly welcome this opportunity to allow another business sector to open to further capacity, which supports local businesses and local workers. We thank our 5 Star Program participants for the diligence they have shown, which has allowed us to expand this program.”

Community members and businesses are invited to join a 5 Star informative Town Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 10:30 a.m. to hear the latest information on how DIAL 2.0 is impacting 5 Star businesses, and have an opportunity to ask questions. The Zoom dial-in details are provided below.
