mask mandate

PUEBLO – In order to address rising numbers of positive Covid-19 cases in the City of Pueblo, and in solidarity with the students of our community, all City staff and members of the public shall be required to wear a mask or face covering when inside City buildings which are operated by City staff. This mayoral order is effective starting Monday, August 30, 2021, and remains in full force until rescinded. “Health and safety of our customers and staff has to be a priority,” says Mayor Gradisar. “We want to ensure continued and uninterrupted municipal operations and with cases rising, this is a necessary step to prevent future capacity limits or closures.”

As of August 26, 2021, Pueblo’s Covid-19 hospital bed capacity is at 90%. Pueblo’s vaccination rate trails the state average, with 58% of the eligible population vaccinated. Pueblo’s positive cases are the highest they’ve been since early May 2021.
