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 public health face covering order is in effect as of Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021.

With COVID-19 surging across the state and hospital capacity threatened, Mayor Michael B. Hancock, joined by metro-area public health leaders, on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2021 announced a new face covering order for Denver as part of a coordinated approach to prevent the region’s hospital system from collapsing.
These spaces include but are not limited to: common areas of apartment buildings, offices, gyms, shops, cultural facilities, restaurants, bars and night clubs.
To become a fully vaccinated facility, a business must first contact DDPHE. The business will then receive confirmation of their attestation and signage indicating vaccines are required in that facility.
