Mayor Michael Hancock said Thursday that everyone needs to stay vigilant because cases have increased in recent weeks.

“The mask order will be in at least until early May indoors,” said Hancock. After that, Hancock said, officials will evaluate the mask requirements regulations “month by month” – as will local capacity constraints and other regulations.

The mayor stressed that anyone who lives, works, or visits Denver in Denver should expect certain public health actions – such as capacity limits and mask order – until vaccination rates continue to rise and case rates continue to fall.
