Gov. Polis Applauds County Efforts to Combat COVID-19

Saturday, April 25, 2020

DENVER - Governor Jared Polis applauded areas of Colorado for their efforts to combat COVID-19. 

“Colorado has a proud tradition of responsible local control and what works for Denver that has had over 2,300 cases, with the number of positive cases increasing from the day before, may not be the same solution for Bent County that has zero detected cases so far. I applaud the leadership of areas of our state that have extended their stay at home orders to thoughtfully take the time needed to implement and enforce safer at home safety regulations. I also applaud the thoughtful work in several counties that are fortunate enough to be able to reduce restrictions thanks to their work in addressing the public health situation. All Coloradans are united in our shared effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19,” said Gov. Polis.
