Colorado Governor Polis Signs Executive Order Allowing Operation of Alternate Care Sites

DENVER – Gov. Polis today signed an Executive Order allowing the operation of alternate care sites in Colorado.

“In the event that a COVID-19 infection surge threatens to overwhelm our healthcare resources, the State may activate alternate care sites (ACS) to increase hospitals’ capacity to provide care to COVID-19 patients. The ACSs will be used to provide care to COVID-19 patients who no longer require inpatient hospitalization but still require some medical care and observation to ensure their safety and well-being while recovering from COVID-19,” the Executive Order reads.
