*In an effort to consolidate public health functions for Denver, many public health programs including COVID-19 disease surveillance are set to be transferred to the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE) on September 30, 2021. At that time, all COVID-19 data for cases, hospitalizations, deaths, and testing will be removed from this page. The Public Health Institute at Denver Health (formerly Denver Public Health) will continue to provide data and surveillance for COVID-19 vaccinations through December of 2021.*
Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) and Denver Public Health (DPH) are collaborating with local businesses, organizations, and community partners to investigate and control COVID-19 outbreaks. Outbreaks are clusters of COVID-19 cases that appear related to a single workplace, business, school, facility, or event. Learning from and controlling outbreaks helps us slow the spread of COVID-19.
In the dashboard below you will find information about outbreaks and the number of cases involved in COVID-19 outbreaks in Denver since the start of the pandemic. This information is updated weekly on Wednesday afternoon, and mirrors information available in CDPHE’s public COVID-19 outbreak data page. Numbers may differ slightly from CDPHE based on the timing in which the dashboard is updated.
When would COVID-19 cases be classified as an outbreak?
- Two or more people who are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in a workplace/facility or with a common exposure, with symptom onset or test collection date (if asymptomatic) within 14 days OR
- One confirmed and two or more probable cases of COVID-19 in a workplace/facility, with onset or test collection date (if asymptomatic) within 14 days.
