A year and two months after the first COVID-19 case arrived in Denver, the city announced Friday it will remove all restrictions on businesses, allowing them to operate at 100 percent without social distancing, and vaccinated people don’t need to wear masks unless a business requires them.
Denver’s mask rules basically mirror the state’s new guidelines.
Gov. Polis announced Friday that all public health orders — the only one that’s really still in place regulates events of 500 people or more — would be phased out by June 1.
On Friday afternoon, the Rockies announced they were approved to increase capacity at Coors Field from 21,363, or 42.6%, to 35,000, or 70%, starting on June 1.
