DENVER DITCHING MASKS: The Mile High City is Done With Masks and Vax Passes

Could this be a sign that more cities will inch back towards normal?

According to Fox News, ​​”Denver’s mask or proof of vaccine requirement to enter businesses is set to expire this week as health officials in Colorado say the omicron coronavirus variant has ‘run out of fuel within our community.’” 

“The development comes as residents in the capital of Colorado have reached a 78% vaccination rate, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced Monday, adding that ‘this virus is something we are going to have to manage and learn to live with.’” 

“Following extensive discussions with our regional partners as well as current health advice and the downward trajectory of cases, positivity and hospitalizations, Denver will not be extending our public health order,” Hancock said during a press conference. “So beginning Friday, people will no longer be required under the public health order to wear masks or show proof of vaccination for entry into a business in Denver.” 

Mask will still be mandated for schools and childcare facilities.
