With COVID-19 surging across America, Colorado is now facing its third wave of the pandemic. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) just extended a state-wide mask mandate for another 30 days, ordered state employees to work remotely for the next few weeks and is encouraging Coloradans to halt all in-person social gatherings immediately. With the state almost reaching its limit in hospital capacity, Polis joins Washington Post national political reporter Robert Costa on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 3:00 p.m. ET to discuss how his state is coping with this relentless virus, and his hope that promising vaccine news may mean the pandemic is nearing an end.
