Gov. Polis Issues Statewide Face Mask Order

Jul 16, 2020

After pleading, prodding, cajoling, using both friendly and harsh language, and appealing to the better civic sensibilities of Coloradans everywhere, Gov. Jared Polis has finally done what he's been resistant to do.

The governor has issued a statewide face mask order.

"Today, I'm signing an executive order that's effective at midnight tonight that requires that every Coloradan, age 10 and up, wear a mask or face covering whenever they're in public," Polis said in a Thursday briefing on the pandemic.
