Colorado governor extends temporary last call to 11 p.m. starting Saturday
Polis ‘very hopeful’ that it move go to midnight within the month
hoping for news of a midnight last call in time for the end of summer and as the governor’s original 30-day 10 p.m. order expired.
At the time Polis announced the 10 p.m. last call on July 21, the 20-29 age group was leading Colorado’s coronavirus cases, and the number of new COVID-19 infections across the state had been on the rise for five weeks straight.
At Friday’s press conference, Polis and State Epidemiologist Dr. Rachel Herlihy said they are encouraged by a shift over the last month in demographic data of the virus’ spread.
