Shelter in Place Order Extended

      Last night in a press conference, Governor Polis announced that he would keep the shelter in place order for another two weeks. Colorado is beginning to see the impacts of the social distancing measures that have been implemented. The state has seen a 60% reduction in traffic on Colorado roads since the beginning of March and is beginning to see the effects of the stay at home Executive Order. When this virus began, the number of cases was doubling every 1.5 days, and now it’s doubling every six days, meaning the spread of the virus is starting to slow. 

In his address, Polis urged Coloradans, “We have to keep this up for a little while longer in order to return to a level of normalcy in our economy and our society. Right now, we need to dig deep into our souls to muster the resolve, the courage, the fortitude to carry on and do our patriotic duty as generations have done before.”

The CDC also recommends that everyone wear a facemask in public. Although a homemade mask can't prevent you from getting COVID-19, it can prevent you from spreading it unknowingly. If you have personal stockpiles or your business has stockpiles of PPE please donate them to frontline healthcare workers. Everyday face coverings do not have to be medical grade but they prevent the spread of respiratory droplets and reduce infections.

It cannot be stressed enough that we all do our part and stay home as much as possible and try to wear a mask when you go out.
