During a news conference this afternoon, Governor polis asked all Coloradans to help slow the spread of the disease by wearing facial covering devices.

We’re asking all Coloradans to wear non-medical, cloth face masks when they go out of the house for necessary activities like grocery shopping or walking around your neighborhood. At this point, a cloth face mask or scarf should be part of everybody’s personal hygiene practices and distancing practices. This is really going to be, for the foreseeable future, an important part of our culture in Colorado, our culture that saves lives, and also helps us all return to work sooner rather than later.”
