In a Sunday press conference, Polis encouraged Coloradans to stay home unless they are leaving for one of the following reasons.

1. Obtaining essential services or supplies

2. Delivering essential services or supplies

3. Going to or from work

4. Exercising via outdoor recreation in activities where at least 6 feet of distance can be kept between people (Note: Find tips for social distancing in the outdoor space here)

5. Caring for a family member, vulnerable person, or pet. This includes walking the dog.

It was also instructed that Coloradans should try to do these exception activities as infrequently as possible, limiting the total number of times one leaves the house. This includes limiting shopping to once per week.

Polis also used the example of “jogging” to show how this recommendation may apply. He instructed joggers to jog once or twice a week, opposed to their norm of three or four times. He also recommended choosing hours where not as many people would be out and about.

In the same press conference, Polis encouraged those with minor symptoms of COVID-19 to self-isolate immediately. He also ordered many businesses to reduce their on-site workforce to half.

As life continues to tighten in Colorado, please follow recommended guidelines to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. The last report indicated that 591 cases were present in the state, along with 6 deaths. This number is expected to grow when new data is released this afternoon.
