PUEBLO — Pueblo Police said Thursday they were adapting to Gov. Polis' Stay at Home Order.

The department said if officers catch anyone violating the order they will warn them first and educate them.

But if they continue to not follow the rules, officers will enforce the order, which includes a $1,000 fine and a year in jail.

"These rules aren't meant to interfere with anyone's lifestyle or enjoyment. It is meant to maintain the health of the community," said Sgt. Franklyn Ortega.

Pueblo Mayor Nick Gradisar also said any non-essential businesses in the city that stay open during the Stay at Home Order risk losing their business license.
