'Please Stay At Home Unless Absolutely Necessary' graphic

A Public Health Order is in effect in Denver. This includes a “stay at home” directive for the entire city that will last from March 24 – April 30. Essential activities needed for health and safety are exempt.

We urge everyone 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. The city’s enforcement of the Public Health Order will focus on education and sharing information for both residents and businesses.
