Colorado COVID-19 Cases Stabilize

Colorado health officials believe COVID-19 numbers have hit a stable point. State epidemiologist Dr. Rachel Herlihy [[HERR-li-HEE]] says case positivity rates and hospitalizations are trending down, even though overall case numbers remain high. Dr. John Douglas for the Tri-County Health Department believes recent public health orders have helped reduce COVID-19 transmission. Yesterday, Colorado reported nearly 39-hundred new COVID-19 cases. Fifteen-hundred-and-45 patients are in the hospital.


COVID-19 Vaccine Possibly Required for Work

There's a question over how much control employers will have with COVID-19 vaccinations getting ready to possibly be rolled out in the United States. University of Denver law professor Govind Persad [[ go-VEEND per-SAHD ]] says workers could be required to get it. Persad goes on to say employees could use things like strong religious beliefs and disabilities as arguments against vaccinations.

The state is set to distribute two rounds of 141-thousand-800 doses to healthcare workers and residents and workers in nursing homes by the end of the month.
