LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Flights from Las Vegas to Denver were delayed or canceled Tuesday afternoon due to a COVID-19 scare at a section of the airport in Denver. According to the FAA, COVID showed up in Denver's International Airport Air Traffic Control Tower, forcing a ground stop. 

Ground stop that has since been lifted caused flights to be delayed for three hours.
