Colorado Governor Orders Statewide Mask Mandate

DENVER — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis says he’s issuing an executive order requiring face coverings in indoor public areas to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The governor announced his decision at a news conference Thursday.

He had long resisted issuing a statewide mask mandate. But he has come under increasing pressure as cases and hospitalizations mount and as several local governments have caused confusion by opting out of mask orders issued by their county’s health departments.

Polis’ order would override those local decisions.
