City and State Gathering and Face-Covering Mandates


  • There are no capacity limits in Denver for indoor or outdoor events, offices, retail businesses, restaurants, gyms, recreation centers, personal services or bars.


Mask Requirements 

  • As COVID-19 case rates continue to fall throughout the City, Mayor Michael B. Hancock announced today that Denver’s public health order requiring public indoor face coverings will officially expire Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022. 
  • Denver’s public health order expiration does not impact the federal requirement for face coverings on public transportation, including public transit networks, airplanes, buses, trains, taxis, Ubers and Lyfts. 
  • In Colorado, face coverings are required for unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated patients, residents, and visitors, and medical-grade face masks are required for unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated staff in homeless shelters, prisons, jails, community corrections programs and emergency medical and other healthcare settings for those age 12 and up. 


Vaccine Requirements

  • As of Jan. 29, 2022, The State of Colorado has amended their current Public Health Order. Indoor unseated events over 500 people are no longer subject to proof of vaccination in order to meet. You can view the public health order here.
  • ​Additionally, some Denver restaurants, events and venues are requiring proof of vaccination in order to dine in or attend an event.
  • Please check with the business directly and make sure you travel to Denver with authorized proof of vaccination.
