Among the updates was an public health order requiring all city employees and people in some high-risk careers to be fully vaccinated by Sept. 30 or be banned from working onsite.

Based on the CDC’s guidance, two-thirds of Colorado’s counties should be under indoor mask mandates, including some counties in the Denver metro area.
