Capacity restrictions will ease up, too.
On Wednesday, April 14, the City and County of Denver announced changes to its COVID-19 restrictions. The changes will see the outdoor mask order lifted and capacity limits for businesses loosened. Masks and face coverings will still be required in indoor, public settings and on public transportation.
These changes will go into effect this Friday and will last for 30 days.
"It’s a balancing act between being able to reopen public life and being able to maintain public health," said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.
Also starting this Friday, businesses will operate at Level Blue, which means there will still be capacity restrictions with some modifications. Restaurants and gyms can open at 100% capacity, with 6 feet of distance between groups; while offices, retail, and manufacturing businesses can open at 75%.
