Companies choose different paths to comply with public health orders

Denver (KDVR) – Beginning Wednesday, customers at the Blake Street Tavern in LoDo will have to show proof of vaccination to enter.

Under Denver’s new public health order, businesses must require masks, or apply for an exemption that mandates the vaccination of at least 95% of employees and customers.

Chris Fuselier, owner of Blake Street Tavern, has informed the city that he plans to acquire a vaccination facility.

“These are really tough decisions for companies to make,” Fuselier said.

The owner says all of his staff have been vaccinated, and it seems easier to check the status of the vaccine once he gets to the door than to enforce mask requirements throughout the building.

“Our employees have been mistreated in the past because they asked people to wear masks. That way you don’t have to worry about that,” Fuselier said.

Arapahoe County has similar public health orders, and Los dos Potrillos in Centennial is taking a different approach.

Co-CEO Daniel Ramirez says the restaurant doesn’t want to ask about vaccination status, so he’ll ask everyone to keep it a secret.

“It gives us an opportunity to continue to maintain a relationship with the client without breaking those boundaries that they may not feel comfortable sharing,” Ramirez said.
