What to Know About COVID-19 and Colorado Travel

We encourage all visitors respect the wishes, public health and capacity of our local destinations, whether in-state residents returning to their favorite getaways or out-of-state travelers discovering Colorado for the first time. The health and safety of both visitors and residents remain our highest priority and travelers are asked to step up by wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Also, contact tracing is a key tool to fight COVID-19 and slow its spread and, now, travelers andn residents can activate Colorado Exposure Notifications to be quickly notified of exposure. Please visit addyourphone.com to opt-in and help Colorado stop the spread of COVID-19.

As you visit Colorado, we encourage you to embrace our new interpretation of responsible tourism — showing care not only for our destinations but for our visitors and the people who call Colorado home. 

Explore Colorado in your mask to protect and show respect to essential workers who keep Colorado running. Please be aware that anyone age 11 and older will be required to wear a face covering in Colorado's indoor public spaces, and some counties require use of face coverings in outdoor spaces when social distancing cannot be maintained. We encourage visitors to check local mask requirements before traveling. 

With COVID infection rates spiking around the country and rising in Colorado, Governor Polis issued an Executive Order putting the new requirement into effect statewide. Please click here for details. 

Know Before You Go. Please check local restrictions and guidelines before and as you travel and visit cotrip.org for up-to-date road conditions and closures.

Please check the What's Open In Colorado guide to find the latest information about which destinations and attractions are ready for visitors. 

To stay on top of the latest conditions, we recommend travelers keep plans fluid, research county and destination websites before and as they travel, and become familiar with reservation cancellation policies. Travelers can also call 1-800-COLORADO to speak to someone directly.

Colorado's dial framework standardizes different levels of "openness" at the county level, allowing for certain levels of activity while ensuring we do not surpass our public health and health care capacities. Visitors are encouraged to check local guidance while planning and taking trips across Colorado. Click here to learn more
