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 Department employs inspectors who are assigned to inspect businesses for compliance of the Denver Municipal Code and Colorado State Statutes. The inspectors:
The Department of Excise and Licenses ensures compliance with and enforces the Denver Revised Municipal Code and the Colorado Statutes concerning business and liquor licenses.
The Department's Hearing Policies and Procedures govern all hearings held by the Department of Excise and Licenses. These Policies and Procedures supplement state statutes, municipal ordinances, and agency rules. They are meant to be a guide to help applicants and members of the public navigate public hearings.
More information is available on our Public Hearings webpage.
