In Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, like in most places, small businesses are closed, families are home, students are learning remotely, and many others are worried about their futures.
Colorado is reopening and people are getting back to work. This is welcome news to all of us, and is owed in large part to citizens in communities across the Third District doing what’s best for their neighbors by adhering to local, state and federal public health guidelines. While a majority of our communities have fortunately avoided widespread infections of COVID-19 so far, we are not out of the woods yet, and the road to recovery remains in its infancy.
