Pure Guess here, Polis waiting to see results of mandatory mask
to be worn when inside. Polis is fairly data-driven. He wants to reverse the trend of increasing COVID cases in Colorado so based upon the models he uses hospitalizations will not increase. A recent model he talked about showed with COVID cases increasing hospitalizations would increase to a critical point in September.
He may be thinking if the mandatory mask-wearing when inside reduces the number of positive cases then this works in favor of fall high school sports and school starting in the fall. If the numbers do not go down . . . . . . who knows.
This is speculation on my part. This is not meant to be a political post in any way. I am not commenting if this line of reasoning is right or wrong, just lending my $.02 on what Polis may be considering.
