COVID-19 Illness Data Summary
The information on this page is a summary of information about Boulder County residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are likely positive (Probable*) for COVID-19. The information is compiled and analyzed by Boulder County Public Health from disease investigations conducted with those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the county combined with reports from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, local hospitals, and the Boulder County Coroner.
Please note that details provided on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website may not match this information due to delays in reporting. This information is subject to change at any time as disease investigations are ongoing. We have removed the recovery and transmission graphs due to incomplete data as a result of limited resources.
Boulder County Public Health and CU Boulder are working to align our COVID data reporting methodology as much as possible. Review the reporting diagram for more information about how data is reported and shared.
The Boulder County Public Health Epidemiology and Surveillance Teams currently use our own data system in addition to the state data system to ensure we are reporting on the most up-to-date information. Each week, the Surveillance Team compares the state data to the Boulder County data to check if case investigations or interviews found that someone who was categorized as a Boulder County resident actually lives in another Colorado county. If this occurs, that person’s record is deleted from the Boulder County data system which is reflected in the data immediately. The team also looks for duplicate records and merges the records if duplicates are identified. Lastly, a check is performed to ensure that we are capturing all deaths reported to the state among people with COVID-19. Although we receive death information directly from the coroner and patient medical records, there have been instances where a death was reported to the state only and we discovered it through our quality assurance process.
