Coronavirus in Colorado, May 12: A look at the latest updates on COVID-19

One Colorado restaurant is making national headlines this week after openly defying the state’s public health order to open for dine-in service on Sunday. The Tri-County Health Department then ordered the Castle Rock restaurant to close on Monday. Gov. Jared Polis said C&C Coffee and Kitchen will have its license suspended for at least 30 days for not complying with state’s rules.

Meanwhile, retail businesses are slowly reopening under the state’s guidelines with small customer turnout. On the other hand, salons are reopening to high demand after being closed for seven weeks.

Colorado is approaching nearly 1,000 coronavirus-related deaths. As of Monday, 392 ventilators were in use with 684 available statewide.
