Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that the state mask mandate no longer applies to fully vaccinated (maxinated) people.
The decision comes off the back of updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). As a result, vaccinated citizens no longer need to mask up, whether indoors or out.
“We are able to really embrace this science-based judgment from the CDC since we have now reached a threshold where enough people are vaccinated where, especially those vaccinated, no longer need to wear masks.”
– Jared Polis
Those without a vaccine are still advised to wear a mask indoors, although it’s not mandated, except for people in schools, congregate care facilities, prisons, and emergency medical settings.
Local counties and towns, and individual businesses can still enforce whatever mask rules they feel most comfortable with.
The current Colorado coronavirus state public health order expires June 1st.
