BOULDER | Boulder County has announced an update to coronavirus health restrictions, including a limitation on gatherings of young adults.

Boulder County Public Health announced the change Monday allowing 18-22 year olds to gather publicly in groups of up to two people, The Daily Camera reports.

The updated order also allows people to participate in “legally required activities.”

A statement by the agency said a previous public health order prohibited any gatherings and public health officials changed the order “to ensure young adults feel safe in the community.”

The amended order allows residents of 36 residences in designated “stay-at-Home properties” to leave home for activities and travel deemed essential, including moving cars to avoid parking tickets.

Public health officials added language allowing work, jury duty, permitted educational activities and ceremonies such as weddings and funerals.

The updated order also allows residents to participate in programs serving adults with disabilities.
