NEW: Nonprofit Emergency Relief Grants
The City and County of Denver has created a new grant opportunity to support nonprofits in Denver to continue critical programs and services for residents across a spectrum of needs. It is one of Denver’s economic initiatives to support the nonprofit community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of July 21, 2020, the Denver Face Covering Order(PDF) has been revised to maintain the minimum age for the wearing of face coverings to three-years-old and to add signage requirements for public indoor spaces. This update follows the statewide order issued by Governor Polis on July 16, 2020.
To comply with the updated order, owners, operators, or managers of public indoor spaces, as defined in EO D2020-138 (PDF), must post required signage (PDF) in a conspicuous place at every public entrance to the facility by July 28, 2020. Signs must be clearly visible to the public and must be printed at a size of no less than 11 inches wide by 17 inches in height.
With Safer at Home underway and the phased loosening of state restrictions continuing, business and leisure activities are resuming in Denver. Face coverings continue to be mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government or health care services and while waiting for or riding on public transportation.
Businesses have been allowed to reopen with 50 percent of employees if they are able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.
While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our vast outdoors than in confined indoor spaces. Much of Colorado is now open with restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk for severe illness.
