Mayor Gradisar extends Pueblo's 10 p.m. curfew through end of year

Posted at 3:01 PM, Nov 25, 2020

PUEBLO — Wednesday, Pueblo Mayor Nick Gradisar signed an extension of the "Home by Ten" emergency curfew.

The curfew will now last until 5 a.m. on Friday, January 1, 2021. It is in place daily from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

“We are entering a grave period for Pueblo, our hospitals continue to be near or at full capacity daily, and deaths continue to rise. In November, the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths have quadrupled from October,” Gradisar said. “The curfew, in conjunction, with recent health orders, are the best tools we have to curb the spread of this deadly virus. Puebloans must continue to do their part and limit interactions with those outside their immediate family. I am extending the curfew to give our community the best chance to flatten the curve.”

Like many other counties in the state, Pueblo County is in Safer at Home: Level Red (Severe Risk) on the state COVID-19 dial. In these counties, indoor dining is temporarily closed, though takeout, delivery, and outdoor dining are allowed. If you do go for outdoor dining, it should only be with family. Bars remain closed and gyms can operate at 10% capacity. Last call for alcohol is at 8 p.m.
