The latest coronavirus outbreaks as of Dec. 2 at Colorado schools, restaurants and more.
DENVER — An additional 139 active COVID-19 outbreaks have been reported to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) since last week, with new cases reported everywhere from grocery stores to restaurants to child care centers.
There are now 1,262 active outbreaks of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in Colorado. A total of 1,048 cases are listed as resolved, according to Wednesday’s data.
COVID-19 hospitalizations, positivity and cases have surged in Colorado in recent weeks, prompting new restrictions in many counties — including the closure of indoor dining at restaurants.
Two cases of the novel coronavirus constitute an outbreak, and the numbers are cumulative, meaning if an entity has a certain number of cases, that doesn’t mean all those people were sick at once.
For an outbreak to be resolved, CDPHE said 28 days must pass with no new illnesses.
