COLORADO SPRINGS — On Tuesday, Governor Jared Polis launched Spanish language Facebook and Twitter pages to help report COVID-19 updates.

According to the U.S. Census, the state of Colorado has a Hispanic/Latino population of 21.7%. Gov. Polis recognizes the need to communicate clearly, so he has made it easier for non-English speakers to get access to important updates about the global pandemic via social media.

"Now, more than ever, we need to be communicating with as many Coloradans as possible," said Gov. Polis. "By launching these new social media pages, we hope that we can further connect with Spanish speaking Coloradans and ensure they are getting the latest information as it's being released. We are all in this together and we will get through this together."
