“We are going to seek getting rid of the 2 a.m. closing time requirement,” Gov. Polis said during a news conference Tuesday. “Hopefully the legislature will agree to make that 4 a.m., at local discretion.”
In July, Polis issued a mandate requiring last call for alcohol to be at 10 p.m. at bars and restaurants in Colorado for 30 days, in an effort to slow the spread of of COVID-19 among people in their 20s. In August, he amended that order to allow bars and restaurants to serve alcohol until 11 p.m. That order will expire on Sept. 21, unless it is extended.
“I think coming out of this crisis there’ll be more freedom, less red tape less restrictions,” Polis said.

    Why close at all?

  5. TomTancredoFan says:

    How many bars will even be left after Polis’ galactic incompetence causes them to go out of business? Heck, add restaurants, small businesses, etc to the oblivion he’s causing. Recall Governor Fathead now!

    Hey Emperor Polis! News Flash. The Pandemic is over. Do your research. What we have now is a Casedemic from all the stupid PCR testing which are mostly false positives. It’s all about control isn’t it Polis? Has nothing to do with a virus—never did.

  9. WS Boyle says:

    The alcoholics theory of consumption. cut off the bar now but add it back on later, This will be so there are more impaired drivers on the road to be arrested and confined to the jails that are already overcrowded. Plus more business for undertakers to bury more dead people killed by impaired drivers.
