COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Health officials in Colorado have warned that tougher restrictions on restaurants, gyms and other businesses could be coming to El Paso County.

They are citing an increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases and related hospitalizations. The Gazette reported that El Paso County Public Health has said residents must wear masks and take other preventive measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19. El Paso County was granted multiple variances including reopening venues at a higher capacity than allowed. But the state could revoke those variances if the coronavirus continues to spread in the region.
