Gov. Jared Polis is set to provide an update on Colorado’s COVID-19 response, as well as a discussion around supporting the state’s restaurant industry Tuesday. 

Polis will speak from the Boettcher Mansion in Denver about 12:30 p.m. and share the update via a livestream from his official Facebook page

Polis will be joined Tuesday by Sonia Riggs, president and CEO of the Colorado Restaurant Association, Denver restaurant owner Aileen Reilly and Xcel Energy Colorado President Alice Jackson. 

Tuesday’s COVID-19 update is the governor’s first since he extended Colorado’s statewide mask mandate Monday, amid rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the state and in Larimer County.
