Denver, alongside our regional partners, requires masks in indoor settings for most businesses and venues. Businesses can opt to verify vaccinations before entry, in which case masks would not be required.
The City and County of Denver is in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2021-2022 per the five-year update cycle required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 for a jurisdiction to qualify for Federal Hazard Mitigation Grant funds.
“Hazard Mitigation” is defined as sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from hazards. The City and County of Denver Hazard Mitigation Plan will analyze the City’s vulnerabilities to all hazards including natural and human caused hazards and identifies proactive mitigation actions the city, Denver Water and stakeholders can take to minimize impacts to people, property, and critical facilities. The Hazard Mitigation Plan will include all areas of the City and County of Denver as well as the Denver Mountain Parks and impacts to Denver Water infrastructure and assets.
