Thank you to Parks and Recreation patrons who have been with us throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and we have stayed true to our mission of promoting the health and well-being of our community. Every step along the way, we have followed the guidelines of Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) when it comes to our community members’ health and safety in our facilities. Recently, the Boulder County Board of Health voted to rescind public health orders regarding masking in indoors settings.

This means that as of last Friday, Feb. 18 at 5 p.m., in all Boulder Parks and Recreation indoor facilities, masks are no longer required. However, given the substantial level of COVID-19 transmission in our community, masks are encouraged.

BCPH also recommends staying up to date on your vaccinations, including a booster shot and that high-risk individuals should continue to wear masks.

For those visiting our facilities, here is some information about city employees and masking:

  • All city employees must be fully vaccinated and submit proof of vaccination or submit a reasonable accommodation request.
  • Employees who are up-to-date on their vaccinations but have been exposed to a positive case may continue to work if they are symptom free, but will be required to wear a mask on the job for five days after the last exposure date.
  • City employees are encouraged to continue to wear masks indoors when physical distancing of six feet or more cannot be maintained, but it will not be required in most places.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we look forward to seeing you in our park and recreation facilities.
