DENVER, Colo. (KRDO) — Governor Jared Polis amended an executive order, extending the statewide mask mandate Sunday.
According to the governor’s office, the indoor mask order remains in effect for all schools statewide. This also includes extracurricular activities, childcare centers, indoor children’s campus, public-facing government facilities and others.
“For counties with greater than 35 cases per 100,000 people, the indoor mask order applies to groups of ten or more unvaccinated people indoors and there remains no outdoor mask order,” the statement reads.
However, the order also allows Coloradans to remove masks in public indoor spaces with more than ten people, if at least 80% have proof of vaccination.
According to recent state data, over 2 million Coloradans have received at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 1 million are fully vaccinated.
“In counties with one week disease incidence rates in excess of 35 per 100,000, masks must also be worn in all Public Indoor Spaces when 10 or more unvaccinated individuals or individuals of unknown vaccination status are present, except in situations that meet the requirements of the new amendment. In counties with one week disease incidence rates less than 35 per 100,000 (Level Green), mask wearing is not required if there are 10 or more people who are unvaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown,” the statement reads.
