The City and County of Denver is enforcing a stay-at-home order through April 30, 2020. The order requires that all residents within the City & County of Denver stay home. Businesses are required to implement work from home policies and delivery of goods to the greatest extent possible. The stay-at-home order is in place to limit community transmission of the virus. Residents may leave their homes only for essential activities. Essential activities are those necessary to promote health and well-being and include:
While participating in the above activities, residents must continue the strict observance of physical distancing practices.
As an additional protective action, both Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Governor Jared Polis are recommending use of a homemade cloth masks or face coverings. People who do not show symptoms can transmit the virus; those who ultimately become sick can spread it before symptoms begin to show. Wearing cloth face coverings, along with consistent hand-washing and physical distancing, can play a critical role in helping slow the spread of the virus.
More information on the order is provided below.

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.
