The State of Colorado sites may be useful for small business to keep up with COVID-19 information as it changes:

“Colorado’s dial framework  about different levels of “openness” at the county level. It is a tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic more sustainable, allowing us to balance, to the greatest extent possible, controlling the virus with our social and economic needs.”  Visit the state site:  https://covid19.colorado.gov.  You can look for guidance by sector: https://covid19.colorado.gov/guidance-by-sector.
