The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reported 20 new COVID-19 outbreaks this week, the lowest number of weekly outbreaks since the first week of July.
The decrease in outbreaks — which are defined as two or more cases at a facility or event within a two- week period — comes as COVID-19 cases in Colorado have been on the decline for three straight weeks.
The numbers of both reported cases and of outbreaks still remain above the state’s COVID-19 low point in mid-June.
Tracking COVID-19 Outbreaks in Colorado
While outbreaks occur in all different kinds of facilities, since June reports have been concentrated in elder care facilities and restaurants.
Five restaurants, five elder care facilities, two stores, a dental office, an office, a veterinary clinic, a cheerleading gym, a construction site, a church, a childcare center, and a countertop company are where the outbreaks were reported this week.
