Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said that Covid-19 hospitalizations in the state are the highest since Aug. 9.
Polis said that there are currently 200 Covid-19 positive patients hospitalized and that state officials continue to be concerned about the upward trend in cases and hospitalizations.
While 200 hospitalizations do not stress the overall hospital capacity, Polis said that the worry is the upward trend. He said that two weeks ago, just 120 people were hospitalized due to the virus.
Polis continued to encourage residents to wear a mask, avoid large gatherings and wash their hands to prevent the spread of the virus.
