Player's Club, an adult-entertainment venue in Adams County, has dropped a lawsuit filed against the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environmentamong others, over a requirement that patrons stay at least 25 feet away from dancers following Player's Club's deation as a COVID outbreak site. The July 16 letter from assistant attorney general W. The agreement also mandates that entertainers clean both the stage floor and the pole used for dance routines after the completion of sets. Moreover, routines are limited to ten minutes so that dancers don't become over-exerted — presumably because intense physical activity could cause heavy breathing that might further spread the virus if the dancer is infected but asymptomatic, and so still working.

In response, the inspector presented Player's Club management with "a set of written requirements that Plaintiff must satisfy before it may reopen for business," with the foot rule chief among them. Twenty-five feet of distancing between performers and audience members is a standard under current state guidelines, unless a venue obtains a variance.
Therefore, the Spacing Requirement makes it impossible for Plaintiff and its entertainers to perform their art. Now the foot edict has been waived after Player's Club agreed to adjustments such as the plexiglass barriers, which basically encase the stage; they feature a cut-out for dancers to enter and exit.
And for now, taking it all off won't include removing a facial covering. Thank you for your time yesterday morning.
Fuselier has provided CDPHE with a written description of the disease prevention protocols that Player's Club has in place, provided an additional description of those protocols on our call, and provided photographs showing the layout of plexiglass partitions in the club.
The barriers span from the ceiling to within two inches of the floor of the stage.
The barriers run horizontally from one wall almost to the opposite wall. The dancers also wipe down the club on each of the stages after the set. CDPHE's Public Health Order requires that performers in a restaurant or bar must maintain a adult of 25 feet of distance from the patrons After reviewing the information that you have provided, CDPHE has determined that the measures Player's Club has put into place are at least as effective at preventing disease transmission as those advanced by this requirement in the public health order.
Accordingly, CDPHE has determined that Player's Club may continue to operate under the measures it has in place in lieu of the 25 foot requirement. As long as Player's Club continues to operate with greeley alternative measures in place, it does not have to comply with the 25 foot requirement as long as Player's Club continues to operate with these alternative measures in place.

This determination does not alter Player's Club's obligation to comply with all other requirements of the state or local public health orders. If facts or circumstances in Player's Club change in a way that would affect this determination, please reach out to us to discuss the matter.
We are also happy to answer any questions moving forward. It is our understanding that application of the 25 foot requirement is the only issue between the parties.
Don't miss out on the action
As such, we believe this determination will also resolve the issues in litigation. We expect that counsel for the parties will execute a stipulation for dismissal.
