CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– The Clear Creek County Board of Health passed a public health order on Thursday night, effective one minute after midnight July 3, requiring face masks. The face coverings will not be required if 6-feet social distancing can be maintained.

Exemptions include children under the age of 3 and those who have medical conditions which make wearing a mask dangerous.

The order mandates a face mask until Aug. 1 but may be extended if necessary. Failure to comply with the order may result in jail time or a fine of up to $5,000.

Several counties and cities in Colorado have face mask orders, including Denver. Gov. Jared Polis has urged everyone to wear a face mask when social distancing is not possible.

  1. Dwight Smith says:

    would be nice if Emperor Polis would be informed of the real science of this virus. Lockdowns, face masks, and stupid distancing have nothing but destroy people’s lives.

  2. “Coronavirus In Colorado: You Must Wear A Face Mask In Clear Creek County” — false; it’s perfectly possible to write headlines that do not make false assertions.
