In response to the Marshall Fire taking Avista Hospital offline, and dramatic increases in cases of omicron in Broomfield, data shows Broomfield must take action to protect the health and safety of our community.
To limit transmission of the virus and reduce further strain on the hospital system, face masks will now be required indoors city and county-wide for everyone age 2 and older, starting Friday, Jan. 7 through Feb. 3.
Are there more specific data points driving this decision?
How will this Broomfield-wide mask requirement be enforced?
Are there any exemptions?
During this incredibly challenging time for our community, it’s critical that we once again mask up to keep each other safe. Please wear your mask in indoor public spaces, get the booster, and continue to encourage friends and family to get fully vaccinated.
