DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Mayor Michael Hancock pleaded with residents to stay home during the coming weeks, saying we are “about to enter hardest phase” of the coronavirus pandemic. Denver is one of the 20 counties moving to new Red level restrictions going into place at 5 p.m. Friday.

That means no indoor dining at restaurants, but takeout and delivery are still available. Bars will be closed.

Retail is open but stores are limited to 15% capacity. Gyms are also limited to 10% capacity.

Denver officials were not shy about asking everyone to stay home, and not to gather with anyone outside the household.

“We need everyone to stay home,” Hancock stated.

Bob McDonald, executive director of Denver’s Department of Public Health and Environment, said he expects vaccines to start rolling out to at-risk populations “in the next month or so.”

“I see the light at the end of the tunnel,” McDonald said. “I see 2021 looking a lot different than we do right now.”

    I see, do you see? The states that have high, at-risk situations get the “vaccine” first. I see, do you see now?
    Get busy living or get busy dying!

    “We are “about to enter hardest phase” of the coronavirus pandemic.”

    Same garbage, different day. People are going to freely exercise their personal rights, so get over it and stop acting like this is the “hardest phase” when in reality, you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Never,never! From my cold dead hands!

    Look at the rates of infection with states that have mask requirements and those that don’t. Florida does not require masks and their rate of infection is no different that Colorado with mask requirement. When are our politicians going to wake up to their fake science doesn’t work.

    Buckwheat, until you give up your big, fat paycheck for the “cause,” and return it to the general fund we will NEVER “all be in this together!”

    Martial Law in Covid sheep’s clothing.

    Wake up, Colorado. You’re being prepped for boxcars to the camps.
