In the Protect Our Neighbors phase, local public health agencies must meet certain performance measures including containing current and future surge levels of disease through the following functions:
- Assurance of community testing, case investigation, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine.
- Outbreak response including site-specific closures.
- Targeted public health orders.
The metrics below have been identified as specific indicators to help counties decide when the right time is to apply to move into the Protect Our Neighbors phase. We will continue to monitor these values to help inform public health actions and guidance moving forward.
As of October 29, 2020, Denver Public Health has transitioned over to a new state system for case investigation management. Data on case investigation metrics will be temporarily unavailable as we transition our reporting over to the new system.
