"Critical Business" Designation for Statewide Stay at Home Order: Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment: Public Health Order 20-24, which defines "Critical Businesses" (listed under III - Definitions, Part C)
If your business is considered critical, you can fill out the Critical Business Self-Certification Form. The self-certification document is voluntary and not a requirement of any state order. It was created to assist critical businesses and law enforcement to comply with public health orders. Once you complete the form, you are simply asked to maintain a copy of the completed certification form in your business records, and produce a copy at the request of state or local law enforcement, public health agency representatives, or any other government agency with jurisdiction over the business, property, or any applicable licenses, permits or certifications maintained by the business. You do not need to submit it to the State and you do not need to receive any approvals from the State. Completing this form and having it on file will suffice.
