Executive Order Extended
Governor Jared Polis amended and extended the Safer at Home Executive Order, which includes the last call order. The last call order will now take effect, based on what level a county is in according to the COVID-19 dial. Safer At Home

COVID Economic Impact
The Governor’s Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) released its quarterly economic forecast. 
“Colorado was one of the first economies to safely reopen in a way that addresses the new health challenges created by the virus. Our businesses and workers are resilient, adapting and getting creative to meet the unique obstacles created by this global pandemic. But we all must continue to do our part by wearing masks and avoiding large gatherings to avoid the mistakes of other states, or the economic damage left in the wake of the virus will grow. We acted early to reduce the economic pain of the pandemic by delaying taxes, streamlining and suspending various regulations, and supporting small businesses with emergency aid,” said Governor Polis.

State Okays CHSAA Request
DENVER - Governor Jared Polis announced that the State would conditionally approve the Colorado High School Activities Association’s (CHSAA) request to make certain outdoor sports available in the A season should the CHSAA board and local communities choose to move forward. These outdoor sports include football, field hockey, cheer, and dance. Schools will still have the choice to offer these sports in the C season instead. If a community falls out of compliance, and enters Level 3 in the Safer at Home Public Health Order 20-35, the approval will be re-evaluated and may be rescinded in that community
