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.
