Governor Update

Governor Polis issued a statewide "Stay-at-Home" order effective Thursday, March 26 at 6:00 a.m.  This order has been extended to April 26, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Effective April 27, Governor Polis has stated we will move into the next phase which will be "Safer-at-Home" encouraging people to stay in rather than ordered to stay in.

 In essence, the State’s "Safer-at-Home" has strong recommendations for citizens and restrictions will be in place for businesses that will be encouraged to slowly open. The following is what the Governor is recommending for Colorado life after April 26:
