PRESS RELEASE: Press Releases are provided to Yellow Scene. In an effort to keep our community informed, we are now publishing some press releases in whole.
It is with sincere concern that we share this press release from the Office of Governor Jared Polis, who has tested positive for COVID-19, along with the First Gentleman, Marlon. We wish them a speedy and full recovery.
My Fellow Coloradans,
Earlier this evening, Marlon and I found out that we have both tested positive for COVID-19. We are currently asymptomatic, feeling well, and in good spirits.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, no one is immune from this virus. Now is the time to be more cautious than ever before. There is more of the virus circulating across the country, including in Colorado, now than there even was in the Spring.
While we isolate and follow the proper protocols, I will continue serving our great state as long as I am able to, and doing everything I can to help protect the health and safety of Coloradans.
I urge all Coloradans to wear a face mask in public, stay at least six feet away from others, and avoid all social interactions with those outside your household. If you are experiencing any symptoms or believe you might have been exposed, get a quick, free and easy test. Visit covid19.colorado.gov/testing
to find a testing site near you.
We’re all in this together, Colorado. And though the light may be at the end of the tunnel, we must do everything we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
