Due to public health precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, starting Tuesday, January 4, Denver City Council meetings will be virtual until further notice. City Council virtual meetings will have posted links to join for committees, general public comment, required public hearings, and to observe council business.
“The public and city employees are our greatest concern during this surge of the Omicron variant,” said Council President Stacie Gilmore. “The virtual format will allow full public participation while providing everyone the most safety from exposure during the pandemic.”
Rising cases of COVID-19 and the emergence of the Omicron variant in Colorado and Denver has led City Council to decide to go virtual to mitigate the spread of the virus and protect hospital capacity. It is important that council members continue to conduct city business while providing a safe space for all who want to participate.
“Council has developed a truly adaptable and inclusive meeting model that allows us to meet our obligation to keep moving city business forward, be accessible to community, and ensure language access,” said Council President Pro Tem Jamie Torres. “We look forward to city personnel and community continuing to participate virtually and in doing so, stay safe.”
