Monitoring COVID-19 in Denver

Denver Public Health and the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment are evaluating 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.

Caution Metrics Dashboard

Caution Metrics are a set of metrics developed by the Metro Denver Partnership for health to monitor when the COVID-19 epidemic in the Denver Metro region may be worsening.

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.
