Boulder’s college-aged residents can now gather in groups of 2

Boulder County Public Health on Monday changed its COVID-19 public health order regarding 18-to-22-year-olds to allow gatherings of up to two people and to allow people to participate in “legally required activities.”

The original order issued last week prohibited gatherings of college-aged residents of any size, and public health officials changed the order “to ensure young adults feel safe in the community,” according to a news release from Boulder County Public Health.

The amended order also means residents of 36 properties, largely fraternity and sorority houses, that were designated as “stay-at-home properties” are allowed to leave for “essential activities and essential travel,” like moving their cars to avoid parking tickets.

Public health officials also added language that allows work, jury summons, educational activities “explicitly permitted” by local institutions, life rites like weddings and funerals, and participating in programs that serve adults with disabilities.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
