Continuing its long tradition of second shoe dropping, Colorado announced yesterday that restaurants in Level Green counties must still maintain six feet of distance between parties. This was a change from its previous communications, which stated that no COVID-specific state regulations would impact restaurants in Level Green counties.

What does that mean for restaurants? Basically, that until the dial goes away entirely (or is changed again), restaurants are stuck with six-foot distancing, no matter what level their county is in or whether they have 5-Star certification.

For reference, below are screenshots of both the old and new guides, showing what a difference a footnote makes.
