A message from our Disaster Preparedness Coordinator

  • The latest data shows us that 1 out of every 49 Coloradans is infected with COVID-19. Not just in Denver, not just in Adams County -- this is statewide.
  • Friday, nearly 6,000 new cases were reported.
  • Our positivity rate is over 12%. This is the highest level of transmission we’ve ever had in Colorado.
  • In red-level counties, ICU capacity reached 87% as of yesterday.
  • If the rate of increase of hospitalizations continues, we could fill our ICU capacity in Red counties in the next two days.

Coloradans should not gather with anyone who does not already live in your house. This includes all activities.
