Denver Public Health and the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) evaluate multiple sources of data to examine and monitor trends in the COVID-19 pandemic in Denver. There are multiple measures that serve as indicators for if the COVID-19 pandemic is worsening or improving in Denver. These include earlier indicators of COVID-19’s spread, such as case rates and testing, and later indicators, such as hospital capacity. The following set of metrics are key indicators being used to inform public health actions and guidance. 

  • Colorado Dial Dashboard & Protect our Neighbors Dashboard - Denver County
    The Colorado Dial and Protect Our Neighbors metrics were developed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to determine levels of county restrictions based on local COVID-19 risk.
  • Case Investigation Metrics
    Case Investigation Metrics
     help us to monitor local public health capacity and measure how well we are doing at reaching persons newly diagnosed with COVID-19 in a timely manner.
  • People Experiencing Homelessness Dashboard (updated every Monday)
    People experiencing homelessness are often at increased risk of COVID-19 and more severe outcomes from disease due to factors including less ability to self-isolate while in congregate settings (such as shelters) as well as often living with other underlying health conditions. This dashboard helps us to monitor COVID-19 outcomes among people experiencing homelessness and how well we are doing with prevention efforts.
  • Epidemiology Data
    For more information, visit the Denver Public Health COVID-19 Data Summary (use Edge or Chrome); it contains data on cases, hospitalization, deaths, demographics, trends, vaccines, testing and ED and urgent care visits.

Free COVID-19 Testing in High Incidence Neighborhoods
