UPDATE: The press conference has ended. Here’s what the stay at home order means.


Mayor Hancock will announce “stay at home” orders for Denver at a press conference scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

The statement announcing the press conference did not lay out the particulars of the orders. But other cities and state that have issued similar directives have ordered that residents leave home only for essentials like groceries and medication, and that all non-essential businesses close.

Watch the press conference here.
