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

 Protect Our Neighbors 

Protect-Our-Neighbors framework announced

Local communities will soon be able to qualify for Protect-Our-Neighbors status to gain more local control in their communities if they meet certain criteria, including low viral transmission and preparedness of the public health agency to successfully respond to an increase in cases.


Open letter: Racism is a persistent and critical public health issue

When the color of your skin correlates with your well-being and longevity, that is a public health injustice that must be addressed.


 Risks & benefits 

Risks & benefits of everyday activities

While there is no way to ensure zero risk of infection, the suggestions here are to help empower you to make the best decisions -- to weigh the health risks to yourself and others with the benefits to your personal social, emotional, and physical needs, and the needs of others in the economy. 





 COVID-19 & Racism 

Viruses don't discriminate and neither should we.



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.

Deaths among cases


Deaths due to COVID-19

NOTE: On July 6, the number of deaths among cases was updated to 1,691 from 1,701. Recently El Paso County’s coroner determined that 11 deaths that were previously categorized as probable were not COVID-19 cases. We removed one of those deaths from the total last week, and the other ten were removed today.

Last update: July 6, 2020, 4:00 p.m.

This summary only includes data through July 5 and does not reflect cases since then. Additionally, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 includes data through Saturday, July 4, and does not reflect cases since then.
