Polis said he wants visitors who are coming from other areas that may not have strict rules regarding coronavirus practices, and to always wear a face mask and abide by social distancing guidelines while in Colorado.

He said anyone working in Colorado’s tourism industry should act as though everyone is contagious and take important steps to protect themselves.

“It’s really important for folks who are coming to Colorado, that are an important part of our economy, our quality of life, to really respect their own health and respect the health of locals,” said Polis. “You’re our guest and being our guest means certain responsibilities.”

Polis did not indicate whether the state would issue a quarantine period for visitors like some other states.

  1. Since we’re surrounded by states where the virus is surging and we’re certainly a tourist destination from other states full of idiiots, cough, Texas, cough, Florida, the only safe way forward seems to be quarantining the great unwashed. Let’s isolate & find success like certain other states like Hawaii, countries like New Zealand & Australia and make Colorado for Coloradans.
