Omicron’s boom pushes Denver city council back to all online meetings

The lightning-fast spread of the Omicron version of COVID-19 prompted Denver City Council on Tuesday to call off all in-person meetings until further notice.

According to a news release, all members of the public are being advised to attend meetings or speak during open comment periods and public hearings. There, city staff have provided links that can be used to view committee and regular council meetings, as well as sign-up links for those wishing to speak during those meetings.

The announcement comes after a hybrid in-person and online council meeting on Monday night, during which Counselor Amanda Sawyer appeared via a Zoom video call as she said she was ill with COVID-19.

“We have to follow the numbers and do what is responsible,” Council President Stacey Gilmore said on Tuesday. “We have a great team and we’ve moved on quickly.”

He said Gilmore presided over all the online meetings for almost a year after being elected chairman of the council in 2020. This gave him a lot of practice and confidence that the city’s Zoom conference call system could handle the load of property redistribution and other public hearings.
