State releases guidance for outdoor structures for restaurants and events

REMOTE, (Sept. 24, 2020): The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) today released guidance for temporary outdoor structures for restaurants and events. This information will help restaurants safely accommodate customers outdoors in the upcoming colder months using  temporary structures or pop-up structures.

Depending on the construction of these spaces, and the available ventilation, they will be considered an indoor or outdoor setting and must follow the appropriate capacity requirements. This document outlines the guidance restaurants must follow to provide a safe environment for their customers to eat in these temporary structures. 

Capacity allowances should follow levels for indoor and outdoor settings as listed in the Colorado’s dial framework. These capacity allowances apply to both temporary/pop-up or permanent structures. The full guidance is available here
