DENVER -  First Gentleman Marlon Reis was diagnosed with COVID-19 ten days ago, was admitted to the hospital for treatment this weekend and today he has been successfully discharged and returned home. 

“I am so thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff and for the support and well wishes we have received from friends, neighbors, and Coloradans during this time,” said First Gentleman Reis. “I hold everyone who has been affected by this deadly virus in my heart. Jared and I continue to encourage our fellow Coloradans to remain vigilant, wear masks, stay six feet apart, avoid gatherings, and wash your hands regularly.”

The First Gentleman is feeling well and his doctor has advised him to take the steroids for two more days. The First Gentleman was treated at UCHealth at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the Governor drove him home this morning. Governor Polis continues to not experience any symptoms and will return to public activities as soon as doctors clear him to be around others.
