Mayor Michael Hancock and Denver Department of Public Health & Environment Robert McDonald warned the community of a continued increase in COVID-19. COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Denver and Denver County and the 7-day average case rate is as high as they were at the height of the pandemic in May. Both Robert McDonald and the Mayor reiterated that this trend could mean new restrictions and stricter orders.
Mayor Hancock: “Wear a mask and avoid gathering in large groups. We need people to stay home as much as possible. If our numbers keep going in the direction they’re going, we could be forced to go back to a Level 3, which would mean business capacities, restaurant capacities, event spaces will get cut in half.”
On the list of prohibited activities under current health orders: attending a party at any location with more than 10 people, going out to eat or gathering with too many people from different households, and leaving your residence for non-essential activities if under quarantine.
