When is the liquor curfew in effect?

On Tuesday, October 6, Governor Jared Polis issued Executive Order D 2020-213, which aligns takeout sales of alcohol beverages with on-premises “last call” provisions that are in place due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) may issue public health orders setting takeout and last call times to any time before 2:00 a.m, based on each county’s COVID-19 status under the “Safer at Home” orders. Amended Public Health Order PHO 20-35 aligns takeout privileges with last call times. 

Garfield County is currently under Safer at Home Level 2 status, which means that sales for on-premises consumption and takeout of alcohol beverages must cease between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. daily.

Below are a few points of clarification: 

● Sales Rooms (wine, beer, and spirits) are included in the order; 

● Delivery sales may continue until 2:00 a.m. for licensees who have such abilities, regardless of level status, or whether or not on-premises sales are allowed during any particular time frame; 

● Takeout alcohol beverage sales must cease when sale for consumption on the licensed premises is scheduled to end.
