According to CBS4 Denver, Democrat Colorado Gov. Jared Polis threw shade at New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham over her strict indoor mask mandate. The news outlet reported that Polis “does not plan on bringing back a mask mandate throughout the state, even as virus cases surge.
Polis “said he would leave masking orders to the counties, citing that neighboring New Mexico has a mask mandate and cases were comparable to those seen in Colorado,”
“Scientists simply don’t know why our region has a spike,” Polis said.
“We are going to add five more monoclonal antibody treatment busses by mid-December. Those will be available in both urban and rural areas,” Polis said.
Lujan Grisham, on the other hand, has implemented a harsh lockdown of the state, which has not seen any success whatsoever. Despite the harsh edicts from Lujan Grisham, New Mexico is ranked fifth in the nation for new virus cases.
However, Lujan Grisham administration officials continue to blame the rise in cases on people not getting the jab, with the Santa Fe New Mexican reporting, “State Health Department officials warned during a briefing Wednesday cases in New Mexico would continue to rise as the state’s [inoculation] rate plateaus.”
Lujan Grisham and Polis served in Congress together, both being first elected governor of their respective states in 2018.
