DENVER (CBS4) — Gov. Jared Polis said Friday that he will be renewing Colorado’s face mask for another 30 days. The current Executive Order was set to expire next week.

“We are renewing the mask wearing requirement for the state, it’s one of the most important tools we have,” Gov. Polis stated. “It’s really one of the things that separates Colorado from most of our neighboring states that are currently hotspots, the Dakotas, Wisconsin.”

“We want to do our best to make sure that we continue with the economic recovery in Colorado, move forward with businesses opening and thriving and consumer confidence, save lives,” Polis said. “Masks are one of the best ways to do that.”

“You care about science, you care about your family, wear a damn mask,” Polis said emphatically.

“And that’s not because I say to do it, it’s not because your public health officials say to do it,” Polis stated. “It’s because you care about your health. And you care about your family, and you care about your neighbors, and you care about your job.”

    Hey Emperor Polis! The pandemic is over. An increase in false positives from the PCR testing is not an increase in real SARS-CoV-2 cases. You will someday be held accountable for this outrage.

  2. KIM says:

    And please don’t forget, if you need to cough when around others, pull your mask down to cough in your hand like Biden!

    If Polis was a man instead of a spineless nincompoop, he’d have said from the beginning what his true intentions were regarding forced mask wearing. Odds are he’ll keep this mask order going the rest of the year, in thirty day increments. Into next year too, no doubt. Nobody likes a furtive, squirrelly fat-head for a governor. Recall this loser.

  4. Frank says:

    Simple question. We have been under a mask mandate for months now and pretty much everyone I see is wearing one. If masks are such a remarkable tool for preventing the spread of the virus, why does Polis keep standing up there telling us how bad things are getting again? Why is the virus spread increasing again if masks are so essential?

    And why do no reporters ever ask Polis, Tri-County Health, or any of our so-called public health experts these questions?

  5. Well gee who could have seen this coming? People need to wake up and realize that this is all safety theatrics. It’s not about controlling the spread. It’s about controlling the populace.
