Gov. Polis Takes Additional Executive Action in Response to COVID-19

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

DENVER - Gov.  Polis took additional action today in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and signed two Executive Orders. 

Executive Order D 2020 038 provides hospitals and health care providers more flexibility to expand the trained medical personnel available to provide health care services within inpatient facilities in response to COVID-19. 

Executive Order D 2020 037 temporarily suspends statute concerning fire bans in order to provide boards of county commissioners with broader discretion and greater flexibility to implement restrictions on open burning. This will enable fire firefighters and other first responders to participate in the COVID-19 response efforts throughout the State.
