A spike in Wuhan coronavirus cases in the Denver metropolitan area forced the city of Englewood, Colorado – just south of Denver – to issue a mask mandate. Those who refuse to comply with the mandate can be issued a lofty fine and sentenced up to a year in jail.
Those inside city limits and over the age of 6 are required to wear masks when:
Inside a retail business
Inside a commercial business
Inside a government office
Inside a health care facility, hospital, dentist, pharmacy and veterinary office
While waiting for and riding public transportation (including taxis and ride-sharing services, like Uber and Lyft) and private car service.
