Friday, August 21 - Governor Jared Polis announced updates to the state's online COVID-19 data dashboard, including simplified navigation and the addition of datapoints involving hospital bed availability. Polis also announced Friday that the statewide "last call" for serving alcohol at bars would be extended to 11 p.m. starting Saturday night. Previously, Polis had set a statewide last call at 10 p.m. in an effort to limit late-night coronavirus transmission at bars.

Monday, August 17 - Governor Jared Polis last week extended Colorado's mask requirement for at least another month. The order requires anyone age 11 and older to wear a face covering in public spaces. Towns in the Roaring Fork Valley have their own mask requirements, which were enacted prior to Governor Polis's masks ordinance that was signed in mid-July.
