     Governor Polis issued a mandatory statewide mask order which went into effect on July 16, 2020, and is in effect for 30 days. The executive order may be extended.

Wearing a mask can help slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. We know that masks can prevent you from spreading COVID-19 to others, and studies show it also reduces your own risk of contracting transmission of COVID by 65%.

We want to keep our businesses open, protect our economy and our lives. And masks are an effective way to do that.

 

Coloradans are smart  -- mask-wearing is already quite widespread among the general public. But we need to increase the percentage of people wearing masks, and we need to do it right now.

This is not just about Coloradans. It’s also about making sure that out-of-state visitors -- especially those from hot zones like Texas and Arizona and Utah that flocked to Colorado over the Fourth of July weekend -- respect our laws and our lives by complying with mask ordinances.

 

Masks aren’t political 

  • Wearing a mask -- or not wearing a mask -- is not a political statement.
  • COVID-19 doesn’t care what political party you belong to. The virus doesn’t care what belief system you have. The virus is the virus and it is a threat to every single one of us.

Mask wearing is key to Colorado’s economic resiliency and recovery

  • Masks are an effective tool for keeping our economy on the right track, inspiring consumers, and protecting our lives.

  • Many professions already require mask-wearing in the workplace.

  • Businesses are required to post signage mandating mask-wearing and must refuse entry or service to people not wearing masks.

  • Many large national companies currently require mask-wearing in their facilities, including Airlines (Alaska, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, United), Apple Store, AT&T, Best Buy, Costco and more. 

Support from local governments: 40 counties and municipalities in Colorado have already led the way by instituting local mask orders

  • Includes using or waiting to use any form of public transportation, a taxi service, car service, or ride-sharing service.
