Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is expected to provide an update on the state’s coronavirus response with state health officials Wednesday afternoon.
Polis will provide an update during a remote news conference about 1 p.m. Wednesday. The Coloradoan will share the live stream of the news conference here when it begins.
Director of Joint Staff for the Colorado National Guard Brigadier Gen. Scott Sherman, COVID-19 Incident Commander for the Colorado Department of Health and Environment Scott Bookman, and Gunnison Public Health Director Joni Reynolds are expected to join Polis virtually for Wednesday’s news conference, according to a news release from the governor’s office.
Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, virtually appeared with Polis for a news conference to tell Coloradans they are not alone in experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases.
