Jefferson County Receives Five Star Certification ApprovalOn December 31, 2020, at 4 p.m., Jefferson County received approval from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) for the Five-Star Certification Program. Due to the recent announcement from Governor Jared Polis that all counties in Level Red will move to Level Orange effective Monday, Jan. 4, 2021, Jefferson County will be working on adjusting the program to accommodate this change.The program encourages businesses to implement safety measures beyond what is already required by public health orders that help slow the spread of COVID-19. In turn, businesses will be able to accelerate their reopening. All Jeffco businesses can now submit a Business Interest Form stating their business is willing and able to meet all the criteria to be considered for the Five-Star Certification Program.Please click HERE for more information or reach out to the chamber office if you have questions.
