Haircuts, tattoos, massages and manicures are all the latest victims of the coronavirus.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment added them on Thursday to an existing order that's closed restaurants, bars, theaters, and more across the state. That order was also extended through April 30. 

Separately, Gov. Jared Polis issued a new executive order Thursday temporarily suspending elective surgeries and other non-emergency medical procedures.
