DENVER — Colorado's Gov. Jared Polis in a news conference Monday said bars and restaurants across the state will close for 30 days in favor of delivery and takeout orders.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock also issued a public health order Monday morning ordering the closure of all Denver restaurants and bars to indoor dining for the next eight weeks. The order in Denver took effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning and is set to go through May 11. During that time, take-out ordering, delivery and drive-thru service will be allowed.

Many Colorado restaurants will make the shift to full-time takeout and delivery while other establishments will be doing it for the first time.

Hancock also issued an order banning public gatherings of 50 people or more. That order takes effect immediately and also remains in effect through May 11. The orders do not apply to grocery stores. 

"We know these measures have an impact on people's day-to-day lives, but these are steps we must take in order to reduce people's exposure to this virus," Hancock said. "With these increased measures, our primary focus remains of supporting our most vulnerable populations who will be most affected by this."

He said it was public health and wasn't about criminality, but said inspectors would be out working to enforce the policy. Hancock didn't get specific about what that enforcement might look like. 

"I can tell you our excise and licensing inspectors will be out monitoring particularly restaurants and bars with regard to that," Hancock said. "While we expect everyone to comply, our inspectors will be active in the city to make sure we're managing it."

The move comes on the heels of a recommendation over the weekend by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cancel events with 50 or more people for the next several weeks.
