With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Denver is committed to being a welcoming city for our immigrant and refugee community. We celebrate the diversity of identity, skills, creativity and ideas. Meet Soad Altaai, a refugee from Iraq who emigrated to Denver with her family in 2009. She now works as a translator helping other Iraqi and Syrian women.
"It's a privilege to live in America. It's the land of dreams," Soad says. "I can make my own dreams here, and I am doing that right now."
