Gov. Jared Polis remotely briefed Coloradans on Tues and introduced three residents who spoke of their experience with COVID-19. It was also announced that five counties with high rates of positive tests, case counts and hospitalizations will tighten restrictions to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.
Colorado has been experiencing a surge that in the last few days has led to the highest daily case counts the state has yet seen since the start of the pandemic in March. Recent changes to public health orders limit gatherings to 10 people from no more than two households in most of the state.
Note: The governor's briefings don't always start on time.
