(22 Apr 2020) One day after announcing that the state’s stay-at-home orders would expire next week, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said residents will still need to practice social distancing.
He said Tuesday that Eagle County, which includes the Vail Ski resort, has applied to end its stay-at-home order early, because the county has seen a sustained decrease in coronavirus cases over the last two weeks.
The governor has said on Monday that non-elective hospital procedures and other suspended activity can start to resume as long as residents abide by strict social distancing and other protective measures.
Polis credited widespread compliance with social distancing and shelter-in-place orders for an apparent leveling off of coronavirus hospitalizations.
He urged residents who can work at home to keep doing so, to stay at home as much as possible, avoid large gatherings and wear masks and other protective gear.
