DENVER — Colorado Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera was hospitalized Wednesday night due to an infection, state officials announced.

“Lt. Gov. Primavera is one of the strongest and toughest people I know and we are glad she is taking extra caution and getting the care she deserves,” Gov. Jared Polis said in a statement Thursday. “I was not surprised when I learned that she plans to continue working today.”

Information about what led to the infection and hospitalization was not available Thursday.

Primavera — a lifelong Coloradan and longtime Broomfield resident — is currently serving her second term as Colorado’s 50th lieutenant governor.

In her role, Primavera leads six programs: the Office of Saving People Money on Health Care, the Office of eHealth Innovation, the Colorado Disability Funding Committee and Disability Policy, the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, Serve Colorado and Aerospace and Defense.
