El Paso County Judge reminds residents of Christmas, New Year Curfews

Last week, County Judge Samaniego issued an amendment to the County’s Stay Home Order No. 15 to include a curfew during the holiday season; on Monday his office reminded all county residents of the guidelines.

“We can now finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as many of our frontline heroes have been getting their first dose of the vaccine, but we must continue to remain vigilant,” said County Judge Samaniego. “I urge the community to take precaution this holiday season so that together we may avoid another surge of COVID-19 cases.”
As a reminder, a curfew shall be imposed during the season between the hours of 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. for all social activities.
For example, a social activity would be congregating in any area outside of an individual’s household other than for engaging and seeking the services of essential or non-essential businesses as outlined in this Order.
Curfew restrictions shall be imposed for the following dates:
  • Wednesday, December 23, 2020 through Saturday, December 26, 2020

  • Wednesday, December 30, 2020 through Monday, January 4, 2021.

The County’s Stay Home Order No. 15 also reflects the changes for dine-in services. All restaurant dine-in services, to include outdoor service, such as on a patio or similar seating area, shall end at 10:00 p.m., but restaurants may continue to operate after 10:00 p.m. via take out and drive thru only.
Restaurants may resume dine-in services, to include outdoor service, beginning at 6:00 a.m. All restaurants are strongly encouraged and urged to offer only curbside or take-out services.
