State Seeks Input on Draft Restaurant Guidelines

cdphe logo

The public is invited to provide feedback on guidelines that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has drafted to guide restaurants when it is safe to re-open for dine-in service. No date has been set yet as to when restaurants will fully open.

The guidelines are draft only and include plans for how restaurants and foodservice should operate to provide safety for employees and the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidelines can be viewed on the covid19.colorado.gov. Feedback on the guidelines will be accepted through Friday at this online form.

Based on the feedback received on the guidelines, CDPHE will finalize the plan which will serve as guidance when it is safe to start easing COVID-19 related safety restrictions for restaurants.

The state is expected to make a decision on May 25 about a reopening schedule. Restaurants are not allowed to have on-site consumption of food or drink until the dates for reopening are set by CDPHE.

In the meantime, critical and non-critical businesses, including restaurants who are providing take-out and delivery services, are operating with restrictions that are outlined and available on the covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home.

Everybody has a responsibility to protect the most vulnerable in Pueblo by:

  • Follow the Governor’s Safer at Home order
  • Wear a non-medical cloth face covering while out in public for necessary activities
  • Minimize social activities and being physically close to other people
  • Isolate yourself if you feel symptoms of shortness of breath, cough, temperature of 100.4 or higher, chills, headache, sore throat and new loss of smell or taste, call your medical provider before visiting them.
  • Do not go to the emergency room unless medically necessary. Contact your health care provider 
  • Wash your hands with soap regularly.
  • Cough or sneeze into elbow or tissue.
  • Stay home when you’re sick.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Clean surfaces frequently touched.
