The move comes as other Denver metro area counties are asking the state to implement an indoor mask mandate. Jefferson County asked the governor to impose that face mask order state-wide, but will now consider reinstating a mandate on its own. Boulder and Larimar counties have already reinstated mask orders.

The health departments representing Adams and Arapahoe counties might take the same approach. Gov. Jared Polis has resisted reinstating a mask mandate or capacity limits on businesses.
