Information on the Outbreak of COVID-19
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our Local Public Health Agencies (LPHA) and our communities to provide updated information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019).


The latest


From your neighbors in the mountains: Please don’t come to visit right now.

There will come a time again when a trip to the mountains will be a lovely part of your vacation or weekend trip, but that time is not now.



This Holy week, the most faithful thing we can do right now is stay at home.

As faith communities are often on the front line serving those most vulnerable, this time has been no different. 


Colorado’s Teachers of the Year offer advice to fellow teachers

 COVID-19 & racism 

Viruses don't discriminate and neither should we.

It's important that we increase awareness that the disease is linked to a geographic location and not to a race or nationality.

Telehealth response in Colorado

Colorado urgently needs medical professionals and administrators to donate their time to provide free telehealth visits. This work will be performed entirely from home, primarily via telephone and/or video calls. Callers will provide their symptoms over the phone, and those who need medical attention will be triaged to a queue for telephone-based care.
