DENVER (AP) — Gov. Jared Polis has warned Colorado restaurants that defy state coronavirus prevention health orders they could lose their license to operate. Colorado’s restaurant sector has been hit hard during the pandemic, with many forced to close and thousands of workers laid off. In recent days, restaurants in counties designated “red” by the state in a color-coded scheme that gauges increasing COVID-19 cases have been forced to halt indoor dining. The Democratic governor’s comments come after several Loveland businesses in Larimer County signed a letter stating they will continue operating at full indoor capacity even though the county was placed in the “red” category on Tuesday.
