    In recent discussions of Colorado's fight against COVID-19, Governor Jared Polis has warned about "backsliding" when it comes to best safety practices, such as wearing masks in public and physical distancing. If residents and businesses don't "double down" on such measures, Polis warned, Colorado's flattened curve could start tilting upward again, as has happened in neighboring Arizona, now experiencing a spike.
