Mayor Michael Hancock won’t be extending the city’s stay-at-home order, which is set to expire after Friday.

The city’s Joint Information Center confirmed on Monday that Hancock won’t be adding more time to the city’s order, which calls on people to stay home and leave only for necessary things like groceries or health care. The mayor has extended the order twice after it first went into effect on March 24.

Hancock has said that Denver will roll out its reopening in phases. He will hold a press conference on Tuesday to provide more details.
