Polis announces new measures to combat economic impact of coronavirus
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) announced a series of executive orders and guidance to private businesses Friday that he said are aimed at combating the economic impacts of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Those include relief for mortgage, rent and utility payments for people who have lost their jobs due to previous orders aimed at promoting social distance to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Polis said he will also allow restaurants — which have been closed to in-person dining — to sell alcohol to-go.
“Locally, the U.S. and of course the world have all been affected because of this outbreak and again, like so many things … it will get worse before it gets better,” Polis said.
