Not willing to wait to find out, about 100 Loveland businesses banded together after it was announced late last month that Larimer County would be bumped up to Level Red on the state’s COVID-19 restriction dial, and vowed not to comply.

Inspired by a pilot program in Mesa County, others, including Larimer County, are now asking the state to OK loosened restrictions for businesses that meet certain safety criteria.

Morgen Harrington, co-owner of the Grimm Brothers Brewhouse in Loveland and a leader of the small-business coalition, said she is contacted all the time by people outside Larimer County interested in variances from state-ordered COVID-19 restrictions.

Potential workaround Johnson is one in a group of local officials, plus dozens of local businesses, backing a proposed new program for Larimer County called Level Up, which would loosen restrictions on some of the businesses hit hardest by Level Red curbs.
