The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment updated its guidance Thursday for indoor and outdoor events, breaking down restrictions by dial level.

The outdoor events guidance covers outdoor receptions, events, fairs, rodeos, non-critical auctions, concerts, outdoor markets, or other outdoor venues "not covered in other guidances where these guidelines and adherence to physical distance can be maintained." On the other hand, guidance for indoor venues such as theaters, concerts and trade shows have also been updated by the state health department.

In order for these events to be conducted, it is stated in the guidance that contact information would be collected via ticket sales, RSVPs or a sign-in sheet. For Levels Green, Blue and Yellow, these events can operate at 50% capacity.

With capacity restrictions easing, are you going to attend a concert or sporting event this year?

The state health department also confirmed with our news partner KMGH in Denver that the Colorado Rockies will be allowed to have fans in the stands this year, though it's not clear how many.

The Rockies submitted a variance for CDPHE review to allow fans in the stands. CDPHE said they approved the variance, pending a few adjustments.
