Both Polis and Reis are “asymptomatic, feeling well, and will continue to isolate in their home,” the Denver Post reported.

“Marlon and I are feeling well so far, and are in good spirits,” Polis said in a statement. “No person or family is immune to this virus. I urge every Coloradan to practice caution, limit public interactions, wear a mask in public, stay 6 feet from others, and wash your hands regularly.”

Polis said he will work remotely and “continue to fulfill his duties and responsibilities.”

Polis added that he began quarantining Wednesday after learning he was exposed to someone who had tested positive for COVID-19. A test on Wednesday came back negative, but he was tested again over the next few days, KUSA reported.

The governor signed four executive orders relating to COVID-19 earlier Saturday, KMGH reported. Colorado reported more than 4,300 cases Saturday, and a three-day average positivity rate of 10.80%, the television station reported.
