La Plata County approved for 5-Star Business Variance Program

A sign on the door of East by Southwest on Saturday says the restaurant has received a 5-Star certification and can open for limited indoor dining, despite Level Red restrictions that would otherwise prevent it.
What to expect when dining in

For those dining in at restaurants certified by the 5-Star Certified Business Variance Program, the rules will be slightly different than they were when the county was at Level Orange.

Mask wearing: Diners must wear masks at all times when they are not actively eating or drinking. This includes when ordering from the server, when paying the check to the server and when one diner is finished eating but the other is not.

Symptom Check: Restaurants will ask a series of questions to determine if diners have recently experienced or are currently experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

Contact Tracing: One member of every party must give their contact information, including their name, phone number and email.

Dining together: Only members of same household may sit together.
