Public Health Orders and Executive Orders
Public health orders issued by a public health agency and executive orders pertaining to disaster emergencies issued by the Governor are laws that seek to manage an emergency situation to help keep Coloradans safe. Public health orders issued during the COVID-19 pandemic set requirements to help prevent the spread of the virus. Many county public health agencies issued their own public health orders, and municipalities may adopt ordinances of a similar nature.
