STATEWIDE (Dec. 14, 2022) — The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment added 588 hospitalizations to the state’s cumulative total on the data dashboard as part of this afternoon’s regular 4 p.m. data update. These hospitalizations span April 2020 to November 2022. This new data is a result of updates to CDPHE’s data-matching process that improve the quality of matching hospital and lab records to each other to account for minor differences in data entry around name, date of birth, and other fields.

We receive information about hospitalizations through multiple data systems and integrate many different metrics to best understand the COVID-19 landscape in Colorado. CDPHE continually checks data for quality and completeness and strives to be transparent in any necessary adjustments.
