Colorado Governor Jared Polis has signed an executive order that authorizes hospitals to deny medical care to unvaccinated patients.

“Hospitals in Colorado are being allowed to turn away patients as the state experiences its worst Covid surge in a year,” NBC reported.

“An order signed Sunday by Gov. Jared Polis gives health care professionals the authority to prioritize crisis care under the direction of the state health department,” the report continued.

According to Kyle Becker, “The executive order’s language is clear: It authorizes discrimination against those who are not vaccinated for Covid-19.”
