Mayor Hancock’s “stay-at-home” order allows families to visit schools to pick up learning technology and food. Families do not need to go inside school buildings. The distribution is taking place outside of school buildings and strictly following the explicit direction of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment when distributing computers to families.
