Preventing the Spread

Masking Recommendations

Masking is not required in early care and education but remains an effective mitigation strategy to reduce the risk of transmission and Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) continues to encourage the use of masking, which can be adopted by childcare programs during times of high community transmission or during outbreaks.

Steps in Response to COVID

If Exposed to COVID

Follow the CDC exposure calculator.

If Ill with COVID

Follow this quick isolation guide from the CDC. This guide includes instructions for a safe return to child care.

COVID Reporting

When multiple individuals test positive, please report them using one of the following forms:

Please indicate the type of COVID test used, for example, PCR or antigen when you email us. You do not need to contact BCPH when you have isolated cases or have close contacts that attend or work in your facility.

CDC and CDPHE recently updated their guidance for the general public, which has changed to discontinue previously established protocols for quarantine. Please refer to How Sick is too Sick for guidance.

Your program may use more stringent guidance if you feel it is the best for your organization.

Thank you for your continued efforts to keep Boulder County healthy. If you have COVID-related questions, please contact us at
