DILLON, Colo. (CBS4)– Gov. Jared Polis stopped by the Dillon Amphitheater on Monday to sign a bill designed to help Colorado patients and health care workers stay safe. The new law will protect patients’ ability to continue to receive care via telehealth which was granted when the coronavirus pandemic began.

Telemedicine became critically important following the Stay At Home order in March. Without the law, access could have been removed when the pandemic ends.

    Telehealth only works for people who have computers and internet access. Not everyone does, especially in the older, more vulnerable age groups.
