If you live in one of these Colorado cities you must wear a mask while in all businesses and public buildings or face potential charges.

Here's the cities that require a mask, according to Denver Post:

Fort Collins:

Effective Monday, May 4, masks must be worn by anyone over two years of age while inside public buildings. However, you don't have to wear a mask while at the bank or a pawn shop, which I find really strange.

This isn't exclusive to Fort Collins, all of Larimer County must abide by this order.

No mask expiration date has been announced.


As of April 29, masks are required while inside businesses and anywhere services are provided, which includes outdoor spaces.

The city could shut down stores that do not enforce these regulations.

No mask expiration date has been announced. 


If you are walking on a sidewalk, at a park or on a trail, you are not required to wear a mask.

Beginning May 6, however, if you enter a business, such as a grocery store, you will not be served without a mask on and could face a fine of $999.

In Denver, masks are required at bus stops, inside businesses and while waiting in line outside of a business.

No mask expiration date has been announced. 


You could face a $50 fine or up to a year in jail for violating the mask-wearing order in Aspen. Anyone over the age of two must wear a mask, not only inside businesses but in outdoor spaces as well.

The mask order ends on May 27.

Glenwood Springs:

As of April 6, anyone over the age of two must wear a mask while in public places. A mask must be worn outdoors where 6-foot distancing can't be achieved.

It could cost you $1,000 or up to a year in jail if you do not abide by this order.

The mask order ends June 4.
