In a press briefing today, Governor Polis announced an executive order mandating that individuals over the age of 10 must wear a mask in indoor public spaces unless the person has a disability or condition that prevents them from wearing a mask. This order will be effective at midnight tonight, 7/16/2020. Jill Hunsaker Ryan, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Department says, “Cases are rising sharply across the state, and evidence has shown that requiring masks helps slow the spread of COVID-19.” For more information, see https://covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance.
