Coronavirus in Colorado, April 21: A look at the latest updates on COVID-19

Many Coloradans are anxious for the statewide stay-at-home order to expire on April 26. On Monday, Gov. Jared Polis gave us the first glimpse at what reopening the state’s economy will look like.

He detailed a phased plan that includes some businesses being allowed to reopen on the end of this month with social distancing measures in place while restaurants, bars and schools remain closed longer.

The approach aims to switch the state’s mindset from stay-at-home to “safer at home.”

On Monday, the latest coronavirus case count stood at 449 confirmed deaths with over 10,000 positive COVID-19 cases.

Remember, all Coloradans have been asked to wear non-medical masks when outside their homes to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Want to know how to make one? There’s plenty of ideas floating around in our coronavirus-focused Facebook group.
