Mayor Gradisar announces citywide curfew to slow spread of COVID-19 in Pueblo

 

PUEBLO – On Thursday, Mayor Gradisar announced he would impose a two-week curfew for the City of Pueblo after an exponential rise in COVID-19 cases in Pueblo posing a threat to Pueblo’s economy staying open and hospital capacity.

 

In a news conference, Mayor Gradisar stressed that it could face a stay-at-home order in the coming weeks if Pueblo does not act now. 

 

“I realize that this is drastic action but we need to spend these two weeks slowing the spread of the virus or Pueblo will move to Level 3, which will decrease the capacity of business, and possibly stay-at-home which will close our businesses,” said Gradisar. 

 

Pueblo has seen alarming growth of the virus in October with 839 new COVID-19 cases. The rise in new cases is also contributing to increased pressure on Pueblo’s hospital capacity. 

 

Mayor Gradisar called on all Puebloans to do their part to fight COVID-19, so Pueblo doesn’t have to move to Colorado’s Safe-At-Home Level 4 or to Stay-At-Home Level 4, “I’m not asking you to do this for me. I’m asking you to do this for our businesses and schools.”

 

Pueblo will remain at the same Level 2 restrictions under this order meaning the same capacity and social distancing rules apply. 

 

Puebloans can still move freely throughout the city during non-curfew times. Those residents needing essential goods and services and essential workers are exempt from the curfew order.

 

Anyone found violating the curfew will be cited by the Pueblo Police Department. Violators could be cited for a class one municipal offense and may be fined to $1000 or put in jail for a year. 

 

“I expect that Puebloans will honor this curfew. If a curfew means keeping our citizens safe and healthy, and our businesses open - this is a measure we must take,” said Gradisar. 

 

The curfew order commences at 10 p.m. on Friday, October 30, 2020, through 5 a.m. Friday, November 13, 2020.
