When Mayor Michael Hancock announced on March 16 that Denver restaurants would have to close for dine-in service in order to help curb the spread of coronavirus, he initially said the order would be in effect through May 11. In a press conference on Monday, Hancock said the restaurant shutdown — and related social distancing measures — will likely last longer.

“The order will be extended, you can bet on that,” Hancock said in response to a reporter’s question about the social distancing order and the restaurant shutdown, which began March 17.

When restaurants do reopen, they will likely have to do so with drastically reduced capacities and added social distancing protocols.
