GOV. POLIS: Confident Stay-At-Home Order Can Be Lifted April 26

Gov. Jared Polis speaks on Wednesday, April 8, 2020.

Wednesday, Gov. Jared Polis said he believes he will be able to lift the state's stay-at-home order on the current deadline of Arpil 26.

"The more people stay at home, we can hit that date or sooner," the governor said. "If people are failing to stay at home and mixing unnecessarily and spreading the virus, that date could go longer if the deaths continue to pile up."

Gov. Polis said things appear to be headed in the right direction.

"At this point, based on the data we have and the data that's emerging, we feel confident that we can achieve that date, that you can achieve that date by staying at home."

Gov. Polis also spoke about the various religious holidays and traditions that are being impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Rev. Amanda Henderson, the Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance in Colorado, also spoke during the governor's news briefing.
