Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said Covid-19 cases have been trending upward in the state.
"In terms of new cases, we continue to have an upward trend. Twelve of the last 14 days have had an upward trend," Polis said in a news conference on Tuesday.
"And hospitalizations, 11 of the last 14 days have had an upward trend in the seven-day moving average. Cases are growing slowly but consistently, and that is the wrong trend ... We want to see them decreasing slowly but consistently," he added.
The governor also spoke about the importance of wearing masks, and encouraged the public to do so.
"What we are doing is close but isn't quite working, and we need to do better, and that means reducing our social interactions," he added.
As for hospital capacity, Polis said that the state is not concerned about bed capacity in intensive care units at the time. The state has 552 ICU beds open.
"One of the reasons we want Coloradans to do better early is, we don't want to have to take extraordinary measures as we had to in April to free up additional beds," the governor said.
Colorado has a total of 37,686 Covid-19 cases and at least 1,589 people have died from the virus in the state.
