Governor Jared Polis recently announced a state of emergency in Colorado and suggested that schools with a case of the virus should close for 72 hours for cleaning purposes. He also added that schools with three or more cases should close for at least 14 days. In the past two weeks multiple colleges and universities have either resorted to online schooling or closures due to the coronavirus. The full list of impacted schools is below.
