Colorado Governor Sets Alcohol Restrictions


Refill, please! Governor Jared Polis of Colorado announced he is reducing call hours from 2 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the next 30 days. However, this rule does not restrict restaurants and bars from operating past 10 p.m., but they can’t serve alcohol past those times.

The new policy will take place starting at 9 a.m. Thursday. The Governor emphasized that the temporary order is not meant to destroy nightlife, but is “needed to prevent large gatherings of young people and reduce the spread of the virus.”

“The state of inebriation at a public place is inconsistent with social distancing,” Polis confirmed. “The last call for alcohol will be at 10 o’clock. People can stay out as long as they like, but if you want to get inebriated, please do it at home with just a few other people, and don’t let your judgment lapse.”
