If your business or venue is interested in performing activities not currently allowed, or activities at greater capacity levels than are currently permitted, under the existing State guidelines, you may be eligible for a variance, or exception, to those rules. Please note that, pursuant to State guidelines at this time, the City and County of Denver is only considering variance requests for outdoor site-specific venues that are greater than 30,000 square feet in size.
Per State of Colorado rules, all requests for exceptions to restrictions to movement and gatherings as a result of COVID-19 must be submitted by the local public health agency for consideration.
We strongly encourage anyone interested in seeking a variance to read the State guidelines regarding such requests.
If you determine that you can safely conduct business or activities with some adjustments or exceptions to the current State rules, please fill out the below form and the City & County of Denver will work with you to determine whether to pursue a variance.
