On March 25, Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment issued a Stay At Home Order for the state of Colorado, mandating that residents stay home unless they are providing or seeking essential services, including medical needs and groceries. This order will remain in place until April 11 at 11:59 p.m.
The Stay At Home Order follows a public health order issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to close bars, restaurants, gyms, theaters, and casinos to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Establishments may continue to offer food and beverage using delivery service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, or drive-up service, which can be found at ToGoDenver.com. Currently, these restrictions and closures will remain in effect through May 11, 2020 in Denver. And while many of Denver’s attractions and cultural facilities are temporarily closed, they are offering a wide array of online and virtual experiences.
Additionally, in response to guidance from the CDC on March 13, Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock issued a public health order canceling public events at several city-owned venues, including the Colorado Convention Center, the Denver Performing Arts Complex and Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. All public health orders in Denver and Colorado have followed declared States of Emergency by both the City & County of Denver and the State of Colorado. Currently, all restrictions and closures will remain in effect through May 11, 2020.
