Larimer County added to the list of Stay at Home spots in CO

As of 5pm tomorrow, Larimer County will also be on lockdown. According to Larimer Health Department's twitter account, Larimer County Public Health Director Tom Gonzales has issued a Stay-At-Home order for Larimer County, effective at 5:00 pm, March 26.

This follows the news of Denver County, and the Tri-County Health Department making the same announcement and effectively asking all of the metro area to stay home.

The Larimer County website crashed so their specific order can't be read at this time, but the general rules have been residents can go to the grocery store, get food via takeout or drive-thru, visit a health care professional, retrieve supplies to work from home, pick up items needed for remote learning for a child and get outside to exercise as long as residents stay at least six feet away from people who do not live with them.

Those who work in essential businesses — which includes health care operations, infrastructure operations media, maintenance, and certain government functions — are most likely also allowed to go to work. No word officially if dispensaries and liquor stores are allowed to stay open but given what happened in Denver when they initially tried to stop those businesses from operating, I'd be surprised if Larimer County didn't deem them essential but needed extreme distancing measures.
