Colorado’s governor has extended a statewide mask mandate for another 30 days, but loosened face covering requirements for groups who are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Under Gov. Jared Polis’ new executive order, people gathering inside in groups of 10 or more are no longer required to wear masks if at least 80% of the group is vaccinated.
The order states people must show proof of vaccination, but his statement did not elaborate on what proof is considered acceptable.
Residents are still required to wear masks at schools, child care centers, public government facilities, prisons and health care centers.
About 1.9 million people in Colorado are fully vaccinated.
