Following a surge of coronavirus cases at the University of Colorado-Boulder, health officials announced Thursday that 18 to 22-year-old individuals were banned from gatherings of any size for two weeks.
“We must take stronger action to stop the spread of this virus in our community,” Boulder County public health director Jeff Zayach said in a news release. “We have researched the actions we can take that would be effective while minimizing the burden on those who have not been the source of increased transmission. We believe this strategy can achieve both goals.”
Whether indoor or outdoors, anyone aged 18 to 22 years old will not be allowed to gather for two weeks beginning Thursday at 4 p.m. It also includes a list of 36 addresses in Boulder, Colorado, where residents have “repeatedly violated public health orders,” health officials said.
