For the next 30 days, last call for alcohol at restaurants and bars across Colorado will be at 10 p.m. Gov. Jared Polis made the announcement in his Tuesday update on the state's pandemic response. He said businesses are free to stay open later, they just can't serve alcohol after 10.
"People can stay out as long as they like, but if you do want to get inebriated please do it at home with just a few other people and don't let your judgment lapse," Polis said.
Colorado Coronavirus Update
The governor said alcohol may lead people to be less careful about social distancing in restaurants. The new rule comes as COVID-19 cases have increased among Coloradans between the ages of 20 and 29.
Last Thursday, Polis signed a statewide order requiring face masks for all Coloradans over age 10 when entering public spaces. On Monday, state health and education officials Monday released new detailed standards, guidance and best practices school officials can use to determine whether to reopen schools this fall and when.
