Jared Polis: Colorado will update its order on the use of masks

Colorado Governor Jared Polis will be holding a press conference to update on the state’s mask use mandate.

This comes a day after the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) announced easing measures for the use of face masks.

The state will update its mask wear order to follow CDC guidance, a spokesman for the governor’s office said Thursday.

The update comes as multiple counties in the metro area plan to go ” Level Clear ” or restriction free this weekend, meaning there will be no capacity restrictions.

Counties include:

  • Adams
  • Arapahoe
  • Boulder
  • Broomfield
  • Denver
  • Jefferson

Denver County health leaders said they plan to release additional details about the change to “Level Clear” on Friday. Mayor Hancock will host an information session at 2:30 pm, Friday.

On Thursday, the CDC announced that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear face masks outdoors, in crowds, and in most indoor settings. The guide still requires the use of face masks in indoor settings such as buses, planes, hospitals, prisons, and homeless shelters.
