With cases slowing, Denver looks at a gradual reopening

Colorado News

DENVER (AP) — With the number of new coronavirus cases appearing to be slowing in Denver, officials are looking at whether it is time to start phasing out restrictions aimed at stemming the spread.

Mayor Michael Hancock said Monday the city will consult with Gov. Jared Polis and the leaders of Denver area cities, including public health officials, over the next week as it looks to decide whether to extend its stay at home order. It’s due to expire April 30, four days after the state’s order. However, Hancock warned that some restrictions, including a ban on large gatherings, would remain for some time.
