DENVER (KRDO) -- Days after Gov. Jared Polis announced a change to Colorado's COVID-19 Dial Dashboard, the governor said approximately one in every fifty Coloradans is infected with COVID-19 during an update on the state's response to the coronavirus on Friday.
Governor Polis reiterated the need for social distancing, hand washing and mask-wearing. He also said we need to stop having personal gatherings to ensure COVID-19 numbers don't continue to rise and overwhelm hospital beds.
The governor went on to say the state is optimistic vaccines could be available for people over 60 early next year -- however he said there's still a ways to go.
"It's still a long time from now until then," Polis said. "And it could make the difference of thousands of lives, maybe even your own, if you do the right thing."
