    Economic Forecast Shows Impacts of COVID-19 Pandemic

    DENVER - The Governor’s Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) released its quarterly economic forecast today. “This global pandemic has had a terrible impact on the economy and our way of life. Coloradans are resilient, innovative, and talented and we will get through this challenging time together. While we are taking cautious steps to rebuild our economy, we cannot let up in our shared efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. If Coloradans don’t wear masks in public or practice good social distancing and physical hygiene, then will see case counts rise as they have in other states and the economy will further suffer,” said Gov. Jared Polis. “I look forward to working with communities, lawmakers, and anyone to ensure the state’s economy and workforce can bounce back stronger than before.”
