Vaccinated persons must have proof of their inoculation. However, the governor did not specify what type of evidence would be required.
In counties with less than 35 cases per 100,000 people, masks are not required in most indoor conditions.
The mandate of the mask remains in force for all schools, children’s centers, closed children’s camps, state government facilities, public care facilities, prisons, prisons and emergency medical and health facilities, according to the governor’s office.
However, there is no mandate for an outdoor mask. According to CBS 4 Denver, Colorado never required an outdoor mask requirement during a pandemic.
Polis changed and extended the term of the mask, as it was due to expire this weekend, according to The Denver Channel.
Polis encouraged Colorado residents to be vaccinated, writing that this would allow the state to “return to normal.”
“Vaccines not only protect you and your loved ones from getting this deadly virus, but they also allow Colorado to return to normal,” Polis said in a statement.
“Achieving a high level of immunity is what will allow life without masks, but before it becomes possible, many more Colorado residents need to be vaccinated,” he added.
According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment, more than 1.9 million Colorado residents have been fully vaccinated.
A number of countries have lifted their restrictions on coronavirus in recent weeks as the number of Americans vaccinated continues to rise.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) announced last week that the capacity of indoor venues for weddings, proms, funerals and musical performances would be increased to 50 percent of their total capacity.

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that it is safe for fully vaccinated people to be out without a mask, but only in small groups.
