Denver – Compass Colorado released the following statement on Gov. Polis’ statewide mask executive order:

The Governor’s reversal on a mask mandate sends a very confusing message to the general public. Just days ago, he said a statewide mandate would be unenforceable and local governments would be better positioned to enforce these rules. Now, he’s issuing a statewide order. Coloradans need clear leadership so we can emerge from this pandemic stronger and more united.” -Compass Colorado Executive Director Kyle Kohli
