Statewide stay-at-home order issued by Gov. Jared Polis

On Wednesday afternoon, a stay-at-home order was declared by Gov. Jared Polis, going into effect 6 a.m. Thursday and lasting until April 11.

This means that Coloradans should only interact with their household residents and only leave the house when absolutely necessary.

With current stay-at-home orders in the Denver metropolitan area and Larimer County, Polis expanded the order to be statewide.

Exceptions to this order include obtaining medical supplies and medication, shopping for essential supplies, such as groceries and necessary household supplies, and receiving medical care. Outdoor exercising can be practiced with correct social distancing methods. 

Restaurants will still continue to do takeout and deliveries, and critical businesses, such as health care operations, grocery stores, utilities operations and gas stations, will also remain open. 

Workers in essential needs services, medical staff and grocery store employees will be allowed to go to work. 

Polis said the actions in this order are to save the lives of thousands of Coloradans.
