Gov. Jared Polis is asking Coloradans to observe a one-minute moment of silence Friday night at 7 p.m. It's an opportunity to remember all those who've died from COVID-19.

"If you're fortunate enough not to have known anybody who's suffered loss, say a prayer," he said. "Observe that moment for your fellow Coloradans, your fellow humans across the world. And remember why we all need to do our part."

As of Thursday evening, 20,838 cases have been identified in Colorado and at least 1,091 people have died of the disease caused by the virus, COVID-19. Sixty of the state's 64 counties have reported cases, and nearly 116,000 tests have been performed.

Note: The governor's briefings don't always start right on time, but CPR News will join the broadcast as soon as it begins.
