Paul Derda Recreation Center

The Paul Derda Recreation Center and Broomfield Community Center are now at Level Blue as of February 22.               

Broomfield’s COVID-19 Dial framework metrics have met the threshold for “Level Blue: Cautious” on the Dial, and as such, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has moved Broomfield to “Level Blue: Cautious” effective today, Feb. 22.

This move to a less restrictive level on the statewide COVID-19 Dial is a result of the ongoing commitment of the community to practice the 4Ws (Wear your mask, Watch your distance, Wash your hands, and Wait on gatherings). This is a great accomplishment by our community, and Broomfield needs to stay committed to these preventative measures in order to stay in “Level Blue: Cautious” and keep Broomfield open.
