Small businesses provide half of Colorado’s jobs. They have been especially hard-hit by the COVID-19 economic crisis, with minority and women-owned small businesses being hit the hardest. Legal volunteers have offered to help Colorado’s small businesses get back on their feet. The website coloradocovidrelief.org was created through a joint effort to match small businesses that need limited legal advice regarding COVID-19 related issues with volunteer lawyers.

Many small businesses face an added layer of legal challenges and expenses during the coronavirus pandemic as they fight to stay open or reopen, and this new initiative in Colorado is offering to help.  The pandemic has forced small businesses to deal with a lot of challenges they don’t normally confront. From HR issues such as what to do when employee furloughs are required, how to navigate different loan assistance programs, even about contracting issues business may have vendors – how do they negotiate or deal with vendors if there’s no revenue coming into the business?

If you are a small business that needs legal help; visit coloradocovidrelief.org, where you can submit an application to see if one of the volunteer lawyers if they are able to assist you. If you are a lawyer who wants to help, please sign up to volunteer.

Governor Polis issued an executive order on Thursday, July 16, 2020, making Colorado the latest to mandate that residents wear face masks in public to curb the spread of COVID-19.  In a press conference on Thursday, where he gave an update on COVID-19 in Colorado; Polis stated that he was announcing a new statewide mask requirement for public indoor spaces (like stores and businesses) unless someone has a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a mask.

The executive order for wearing a face mask goes into effect today, Friday, July 17, and applies to everyone in the state who is age 10 and older. The Governor stated that masks will be required for people “whenever they’re in any public indoor space” and went on to say that any businesses that do not enforce this could lose their license. Failure to wear a mask could carry civil or criminal penalties such as trespassing as reported on CBS Denver when the state-wide mandate was announced.

Previously, Polis encouraged local municipalities to enforce their own ordinances and pandemic protocols but shifted his stance stating that Colorado continues to report increasing case numbers. “I’m hoping this is a wakeup call,” Polis said.

You can watch the Governor’s full press conference that addresses this mandate on his Facebook page or visit denver.cbslocal.com for the story.
