City and County of Denver COVID-19 Status Update

Published on July 09, 2021

The City and County of Denver today provided the following COVID-19 status update:

MLB All-Star Game Reminders

For the past several weeks, venues across the Denver metro area have been opening both indoor and outdoor settings without an uptick in cases. This is largely due to the vaccination rate in the area surpassing 70%. In addition, the city’s positivity rate is below 2% and case counts and hospitalizations remain low. For vaccinated fans and visitors to the city, MLB All-Star Game events are a return to the things they enjoy. However, the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment strongly encourages unvaccinated fans participating in any MLB All-Star Game events to wear a mask and maintain an appropriate distance wherever possible.

CVS Health and MLB are teaming up to host a free vaccination clinic for all eligible teenagers and adults to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at PLAY BALL PARK, All-Star Week’s biggest free fan event at the Colorado Convention Center.
