WASHINGTON, D.C. -  Today Gov. Jared Polis advocated for federal funding and resources to help Colorado’s communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor was joined by Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment executive director Jill Ryan. 

“As Governor, I must do everything I can for Coloradans. This is a time for all Americans to work together because we all have a common foe that is COVID-19 and the economic devastation it has caused. I wanted to update the President on what is going on in the real world and how he and the federal government can be a better partner in helping our state get the supplies we need to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. I shared with the President how Coloradans are working together to slow the spread of the virus, wearing masks and taking cautious steps to help our Colorado economy rebound by using data and science every step of the way. We look forward to a continued partnership with the federal government, the private sector and anyone who can help Colorado get the supplies our communities need.”
