Colorado Gov. Jared Polis' husband, Marlon Reis, has been taken to the hospital for treatment following worsening COVID-19 symptoms, according to a press release from the governor's office Sunday. 

"Over the last 24 hours, First Gentleman Marlon Reis started to experience a slightly worsening cough and shortness of breath on day eight after being diagnosed with COVID," the governor's office said in the statement. "As a precaution, the First Gentleman has been transported to the hospital for review and treatment."

In a post on his Facebook page, Reis said he began experiencing "a worsening cough and shortness of breath" after fighting the virus for eight days. 

"My doctor suggested that as a precaution I go to the hospital, so a few hours ago Jared drove me to the hospital where I was admitted and am now being closely monitored," Reis said.

Reis asked, in addition to sending kind thoughts and prayers for everyone impacted by the coronavirus, that Americans be "extra careful to avoid getting it."

"Wearing a mask properly reduces your risk by half! Also, make sure to avoid social gatherings (right now one in forty Coloradans are contagious with Coronavirus) and keep a distance from others," Reis said. "I hope to be home soon!"
