Dogs will get their chance to shed the quarantine-15 starting Friday when Denver dog parks reopen to the public after a coronavirus shutdown.

In a city that has more dogs than children, dog parks are important (so are playgrounds for, you know, humans, but they’ve already reopened).

Denver officials suggest using hand sanitizer frequently when soap and water is unavailable and maintaining six feet of distance from others. Masks are “highly recommended,” the city’s joint information center wrote in an email.
