State seal

DENVER – Gov. Jared Polis signed an Executive Order today extending the disaster emergency declaration for COVID-19 for an additional 30 days.

The April 9 disaster declaration allows Colorado to access additional resources, temporarily waives procurement statutes for purchases related to COVID-19, and authorizes the implementation of the state’s Crisis Standards of Care plan .

The CSC Plan was recommended by the Governor’s Expert Emergency Epidemic Response Committee on April 5, and verbally adopted by the governor.

The Governor also signed an Executive Order extending deadlines for state severance taxes. This is a one-time extension from April 15 until May 15.
