DENVER - Governor Jared Polis released the following statement after Vail Resorts announced they would be suspending operations at their resorts beginning March 15 until March 22 in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus). 

“Colorado is strong and we will get through this together. The safety and health of our most vulnerable and of our communities is our top priority. I commend Vail Resorts for taking this difficult, responsible step and urge other mountains and resorts to do the same.
