Denver Mayor Michael Hancock ordered the closure of all restaurants and bars except for delivery and carryout service Monday in an attempt to curtail the spread of the new coronavirus, which is surging throughout the world.

The rule will take effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Hancock also announced a number of other measures, including the closure of all city DMV locations until further notice and social distancing for those held in the city jail.
