Colorado orders businesses to reduce employees in offices by 50%

Colorado News

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is ordering non-critical businesses to cut the number of employees working together in offices and other workplaces by at least half.

On Sunday, he also urged state residents to also do their part to reduce their potential exposure to the coronavirus by doing things like only shopping once a week and jogging less frequently and at different hours.

Polis said the state will set an example with more than half of its employees who do not work in round-the-clock operations working from home starting Monday. He urged private employers to decrease workplace density by allowing telecommuting when possible or staggering shifts if it’s not.
