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.
As of November 24, 2021: Due to a new public health order announced by Mayor Michael B. Hancock, all individuals two (2) years of age or older must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth in all public, indoor spaces including Denver Recreation Centers. It is not required to wear face coverings while in a swimming pool and actively engaged in a pool activity. Learn more about the Public Health Order.
