CDPHE Symptom Tracker
State health officials launched an online survey which they hope will help the state better track and prevent coronavirus. The “symptom tracker” is a voluntary online survey which provides the state information on what regions are experiencing higher levels of coronavirus symptoms.
The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment is also reporting data online. The dashboard is updated daily by 6 p.m. Maps depicting case, hospitalization, and death rates are updated every Wednesday.
Officials said the numbers and information on this page may differ from CDPHE due to differences in timing of reporting. The data does not reflect information for cases currently under investigation.MORE NEWS: Boat Ramps Closed At Three Western Slope Reservoirs, Closures Expected At Blue Mesa As Water Level Drops
