DENVER — Denver’s stay-at-home order is expected to be extended through the end of April, Mayor Michael Hancock said on Tuesday.

"You can anticipate that it will be extended until April 30, as we continue to try to ride ourselves out of this and flatten the curve," the mayor said in an interview with Next with Kyle Clark.

"You can plan on it," he said. "There's no one around me that's telling me we'll be out of the woods by April the 11th."

The city's current stay-at-home order is in effect until April 10. In a news release last week, Denver said it wanted to align with Colorado's statewide public health order, dated to expire on April 11. An updated order will push back Denver's end-date by more than two weeks.
