On Tuesday, The CDC Announced Their Latest Updates On Masks & Indoor Public Spaces

The governor has yet to make an official announcement.

On Tuesday, the CDC has regulated that even fully vaccinated people should wear masks in indoor public places due to the high rise of the Delta variant that has led to more breakthrough cases. Coronavirus infections have increased in many Colorado counties, crossing the threshold of 50 or more cases per 100,000 over the last week.

Some states like Illinois and California have adopted the mandate, but so far, Gov. Jared Polish hasn’t issued a public statement in regards to masks here in Colorado. While Denver is still carrying out vaccinations and is asking people to continue to get their vaccine, the CDC is pushing for masks indoors due to worry of “breakthrough” cases, in which vaccinated people can still catch the Delta strain and spread it to unvaccinated individuals. The good news about the vaccine is that it dramatically lowers the chance of hospitalization or serious illness.

We’ll see how this plays out over the upcoming months, and whether a new announcement will be made for the summer or in time for the school year.
