On Thursday, Gov. Jared Polis extended and amended an Executive Order requiring Coloradans to wear face coverings.

The amendment clarifies that individuals performing life rites are exempt from the face covering mandate while a life rite is being performed. “Life rites” include wedding ceremonies, graduations, funeral services, baptisms, bris ceremonies, and other religious ceremonies.

The executive order expires 30 days from Aug. 14.
