Letter to the editor: Polis should stop

Here we are 2-3 weeks after the Water’s Edge Winery and C&C Café openings without a single related COVID-19 incidence being exposed in the media. It is highly unlikely that the media would miss spreading something like that far and wide and frequently.
This likely upends the assertion of the Polis orders being necessary to safeguard the masses for their own good.
If this is true the people of Colorado and their livelihoods continue to be put under unnecessary duress in perpetuity, as well as any potential real economic gain from the substantial summer tourism dollars that normally come into the Colorado coffers.
It seems to me that this is more about Governor Polis attempting to justify his heavy-handed orders in relation to the infinitesimal numbers that were orders of magnitude lower than the models or even he predicted would happen by now.
Considering the actual statistics, it’s hard to explain this as anything but politically motivated and aimed at the November election. His executive orders significantly weaken petition and ballot initiative integrity and telegraph that he may limit in-person voting significantly by enforcing social distancing requirements in the primaries and potentially November if he extends the state of emergency. Does he really think he needs social distancing with little data to support it?
Restore Colorado fully to its prior COVID-19 state Governor Polis, your state of emergency and emergency powers are no longer needed and very telling if allowed to continue.
