Variance Requests

The City and County of Denver variance request process holds public health as the top priority in the consideration of all requests. Please be aware that the process requires extensive review and consideration and may take several weeks to complete. Additionally, the processing of requests may be paused or delayed at any time based on trends with virus data. Priority consideration will focus on requests submitted by industry organizations, as these variances if granted will impact the greatest amount of opportunity.

The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment and Denver Public Health are committed to collaborating with local businesses and organizations to investigate and control COVID-19 outbreaks.
