Governor extends, amends face covering order


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.
