Colorado Springs Mayor updates community on safety, social distancing amid COVID-19 pandemic

Coronavirus

COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers addressed the community at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24.

The Mayor spoke about social distancing, and asked the public to comply with the Governor’s Orders, including observing the necessary distance of six feet from others, especially in parks. The order also calls for cancelling any gathering that would include more than ten people.

On March 5, CDPHE’s public health laboratory confirmed the first presumptive positive COVID-19 test result in Colorado. Since then, the number of confirmed cases has continued to climb. Colorado needs to take these precautions for the preservation of public health and safety throughout our entire State and to ensure our health care delivery system can serve those who are sick.
