DENVER (AP) — Gov. Jared Polis says two people have tested positive for coronovirus in Colorado, marking the state’s first cases in the global outbreak. The governor said in a news conference Thursday that the two cases aren’t connected.

The first is a man in his 30s who tested positive in Frisco. That man traveled to Italy in February before visiting Summit County, where many of Colorado’s ski resorts are located. Polis says the man’s traveling companion in Italy also tested positive in another state. The man is recovering in isolation in the Denver area. No details were immediately available about the second case.
