DENVER (KRDO) -- Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued a statement Friday asking all residents in the state to wear a cloth mask if going outside for essential errands.

The governor gave an update on the status of COVID-19 in the state as the number of cases has soared over 4,100 and deaths have topped 105.

Polis also demonstrated with a mask of his own and said that when you're back home to "wash the mask in a heat wash" and then wash your hands and face.

The idea is to help prevent the spread of droplets that could carry the COVID-19 virus or other illnesses. The governor acknowledged that cloth masks aren't a 100% safeguard, but he said the more people wear masks, the sooner that the state can roll back restrictions in place under a public health order.

You can also get cloth and instructions on how to make the masks at Coloradomaskproject.com.

We'll update this article with new information as it is made available.

  1. Time to rob a bank? But seriously, why doesnt polis have Israeli flags and gay rainbows on his mask?

  2. Been gloved and masked any time I HAVE to go somewhere since this mess started. I have one of those washable masks people use while in the snow. Covers nose and mouth perfectly and easy to wash.

  3. Pole sucker looks like he’s going to one of those anonymous gay sex orgies. I wonder how him and his boyfriend are social distancing?

    1. Pinned up, latent homophobic statement made by a man questioning his own sexuality. Good luck. Don’t be afraid to try new things. You’ll figure yourself out.
