This is a follow-up to the alert that was sent on Sunday November 21st about the Jefferson County Board of Health meeting on masking and vaccine passports scheduled for Monday, Nov. 22nd at 11:00AM.
It has come to our attention that Tri – County Board of Health is also having a meeting to consider a mask mandate in all public Indoor spaces in Adams and Arapahoe Counties. Tri-County Health does not provide a draft of their actual proposed order on the web site as of 11/21/2021. However, Tri-County Health Department signed the letter requesting that Governor Polis issue a statewide order mandating vaccine passports and face coverings for all Coloradans ages 2 and older in public indoor settings without vaccine passports.
If you live in Adams or Arapahoe County plan on attending the Zoom Webinar so you can hear their rationale for this order and provide your comments.
