In early August, the state granted Arapahoe County an extension for its variance, which was set to be revoked if high case rates continued; however, the county has since seen a drop in coronavirus case rates. Around 96 percent of residents in the county have been wearing masks, according to public health officials.
A variance is a leniency granted to businesses and churches that eases restrictions if the county proves that cases are under a certain level. If Arapahoe County loses its variance, some businesses would be forced to scale back their services, and others may have to close.
Since Sept 1, 2,496 new cases have been reported in Colorado.
As of Wednesday, 59,920 people have been infected with the coronavirus in Colorado among 756,298 people who have been tested since the outbreak began, health officials confirmed. Around 7,173 people have been hospitalized, and the death toll has reached 1,882.
