Gov. Jared Polis provides update Colorado’s decision to require COVID-19 vaccines for employees

On August 18th, Governor Polis provided an update on the state’s decision to require vaccines for employees working in its 24/7 facilities and interacting with vulnerable populations.

“Colorado currently has the 7th lowest COVID rate, but that doesn’t mean we can let our guard down. We’re still learning about the virus, though we know that the Delta variant has truly changed the trajectory of this pandemic,” said Governor Polis. “The best thing we can all do is get vaccinated and wear a mask indoors around others for an additional level of protection.”
