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.

The City and County of Denver is enforcing a stay-at-home order through May 8, 2020. 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 May 26.

The city is gradually moving from an emergency response phase into one of relief and recovery. As of Wednesday, May 6, 2020, face coverings are mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government of health care services, and waiting for or riding on public transportation.

On May 9, 2020, many businesses will be allowed to re-open with 50% of employees if able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face covering order and other guidelines.

Everyone is urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. We know this is a big ask of our residents and businesses, but it is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our community.
