El Paso County businesses can now apply to increase capacity limits through the State’s 5 Star program. The local program will be available to restaurants, gyms and fitness centers, personal services, and indoor events in El Paso County. Certified businesses can enjoy increased capacity limits at one level higher on the state’s COVID-19 dial framework. El Paso County moved to Level Orange on January 4, and its incidence/metrics all reached the Level Orange threshold on January 24. This positive trend allows the program to be fully implemented in El Paso County today and certified businesses will be allowed to operate at Level Yellow capacities. More information is available on the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce Website.
