Local Preparation and Coordination

Translate This Page


The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment is coordinating with other local public health agencies, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE), and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our goal is to ensure accurate and timely information is provided to the public.

Following the expiration of Denver’s Stay at Home Order, the City and County of Denver continues to prioritize community health and safety as it shifts to re-opening and recovery. People are encouraged to continue taking precautions to protect their health and the health of others. 

New requirements and guidelines

  • Face coverings are mandatory for anyone over the age of 3 when inside of, or waiting in line to enter, any retail or commercial business or any location or facility offering government or healthcare services, as well as while waiting for or riding public transportation.
  • Gatherings of more than 10 people will continue to be prohibited through June 1.

Long-term Citywide COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan

Denver’s Citywide COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan defines the objectives and strategies for pandemic recovery efforts. This plan supports public health and emergency plans and lays out coordinated objectives and tasks to support long-term recovery for the whole community. The Recovery Action Plan is a working document and an updated version will be posted here every month. Public feedback is welcomed and can be sent to

Situation Reports


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.
