Douglas County was the most prominent as a group of restaurant owners had announced openings on social media before official approval. That prompted Tri-County Health (Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties) to release a statement responding to their posts.

According to Tri-County Health, Arapahoe and Adams Counties did not submit variance requests.

These counties received approval letters from the CDPHE:

Chaffee County

Each approval letter includes a guideline specific to each county allowing the CDPHE to rescind the approval in the case of a spike in positive COVID-19 cases.
