Let's just say it caused quite the stir and that truck is still there by the way but apparently according to this piece by molly bahaman despite the weather yesterday which was well of wintry as we have that wintry next of rain snow falling you had people coming from across colorado some even across state lines to voice their concerns. listen to about a dozen speakers Who shared their beliefs about the cove.

Now the protest was originally planned against the county's verified vaccine facility program that was announced alongside the county's most recent indoor mass mandate now that voluntary program. Which has been placed on hold for the immediate future allow businesses that required employees and customers to be vaccinated to ignore the basque mandate for indoor spaces. Rather we later found out that even though they jump through all the hoops in order to get that get that particular easement from the mandates that was not grandfathered in to the equation so even though they followed all of the mandates restrictions at least to my understanding while they weren't grandfathered in now the program was actually paid placed on pause following community outcry on october twenty. First just six days. After it was announced on october fifteenth. It was set to go into a fact just yesterday but once again as i mentioned on indefinite hold while the department takes in additional community feedback now.
