Update: Douglas County Safer at Home Order

Effective April 27, Colorado is now under the Level 2, Safer at Home Order. With this order, many businesses, including retail, personal services, and non-critical offices can reopen under strict guidelines.

Douglas County decided not to extend the Stay at Home Order under Tri-County Health due to the low number of cases compared to other counties.

Under the Safer at Home Order, many of the Sterling Center tenants are reopening for business with strict guidelines. Please see the update list of business operations below. All patrons of the Sterling Center are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering, wash their hands before entering the building, and abide by all social distancing guidelines when interacting with others and staff.

Update: Effective immediately Douglas County now under Governor Polis’ Stay at Home Orders
The Tri-County Health Department rescinded its Stay at Home Order, that was issued March 25.  Douglas County will now be under Governor Polis’ order that was issued to all Colorado Counties and went into place on March 26 at 6am and will continue until at least April 11. In today’s Tri-County statement is the message that this action will “ensure social distancing requirements are consistent across the state, and that our communities are not confused by multiple orders.”
The statewide order (click here), issued by Governor Polis generally requires Coloradans to stay home unless they need to leave for necessary business reasons or to get food, exercise or seek medical care.
Businesses deemed “critical” are exempt. They must, however, adhere to strict social distancing measures. Critical businesses, activities and sites include:
  • Hospitals, pharmacies, veterinarians and other health care providers
  • Utilities, oil and gas production operations, transportation infrastructure, hotels, and restaurants and bars offering takeout and delivery
  • Grocery stores, gas stations, gun stores, liquor stores, marijuana shops, banks, auto supply and repair businesses, and child care centers
  • The news media
  • Visits to family members or other loved ones who need help or medical care
Please click here for a helpful reminder as to what is allowed and what is not allowed.
Please keep in mind that the purpose of the Stay at Home Order is public safety. We urge anyone who feels slightly ill or who has an underlying health condition to stay at home. Sterling Ranch residents have a strong community bond, and we need to be there for each other more than ever during this time. We have assembled a list of willing helpers to assist those who cannot leave their home. If you are in a high-risk category and need assistance with an essential activity, please contact Lifestyle Director, Kate Kunzie at or at 720-441-8396.
The CAB is a government entity serving citizens with essential functions (water, sewer, utilities, construction, and many more services) and therefore the CAB is exempt from the order for the purposes of providing essential functions. In the spirit of public health and safety and an effort to help stop the spread of the virus, it is necessary to close as many public facilities as possible.


  • Until further notice, all CAB playgrounds are closed. Closure signs have been posted and caution tape has been applied.
  • Construction activity is considered essential the builders may continue constructing, if they choose.
  • CAB will continue with all construction of public infrastructure. All construction areas remain closed to non-construction personnel. Please stay out of the construction areas as these are active construction zones.
  • Community standard enforcement is being conducted on a voluntary basis. Inspections will occur, however, notices will not be sent. Homeowners out of compliance will receive a courtesy call indicating the item that falls outside the community standard with a request for voluntary compliance. Please help us to maintain the beauty of Sterling Ranch and the enhanced property values by complying with the community standards.
We hope that everyone will adhere to the Stay at Home Order but also take advantage of the opportunities to play in this wonderful place that has been specially designed for your enjoyment and outdoor use.
Best Regards and Stay Safe,
Denise Hogenes
Sterling Ranch CAB, General Manager
