500+ Denver businesses qualify as fully vaccinated, allowing them to bypass mask mandate

A business must verify that 95% or more of people in the facility, at any given time, are fully vaccinated to qualify along with a few other rules.

DENVER — Over 500 businesses in Denver qualify as fully vaccinated facilities, allowing them to bypass the city's indoor mask mandate.

Under a city public health order, a business must enforce mask-wearing in indoor public spaces unless the business or venue implements a vaccine verification check system. They have to verify that 95% or more of the people in the facility, at any given time, are fully vaccinated by checking for proof of vaccination before patrons enter the establishment.

  • Contact information (including email address and phone number) of the person at the facility responsible for verifying the vaccination status of people within the facility
