BOULDER, CO — The gathering limit for people ages 18 to 22 in Boulder has been loosened, public health officials announced Tuesday. As of noon, students can gather in groups of up to six people.
“This is such good news. This means that our community is safer from the spread of this disease, and young adults can connect with a few more of their friends,” said Jeff Zayach, Boulder County Public Health executive director.
Between Oct. 2 and Saturday, 239 new cases of the coronavirus were reported in Boulder County — a far lower weekly number than the county reported over the past month, public health data shows.
Boulder County Public Health issued an order Sept. 24 that required everyone in Boulder between the ages of 18 to 22 to halt gatherings, and so far, the order appears to be working — the University of Colorado Boulder’s spike in cases
