Counties across Colorado saw a new increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, and some regions saw a significant two-week increase in incidence. El Paso County, Denver County, and Pueblo County all experienced more than 350 incidents per 100,000 residents, which is the threshold for the ability to return on a home order.
Governor Polis said the state has now surpassed its peak in hospital admissions for COVID-19. The current 894 figure exceeds those seen in the early part of the pandemic.
Dr. Rachel Herlihy and the Governor of Polis asked the people of the Coloradans to do three things during the month of November:
- Interact only with your family members. Don’t go to any public gathering.
- Keep your distance if you have to go out.
- Always wear a mask if you have to go out.
Polis says that 1 out of every 100 people in Coloradans is infected with COVID-19, which is important to heed these recommendations. However, those were just recommendations and the office of Governor Polis or the Department of Public Health and Environment has not issued any stricter statewide guidelines for dealing with this increase.
