DENVER — According to updated data released Monday by the state, the current coronavirus case summary reads as follows:

37,242 cases* (+329 from Sunday)
5,941 hospitalized (+46)
61 counties (unchanged)
401,942 people tested** (+5,579)
1,727 deaths (+2) among cases, 1,589 deaths (-3) due to COVID-19
399 outbreaks (+1)

*The number of cases includes people who have had a test that indicated they were positive for COVID-19. The number of cases also includes epidemiologically-linked cases — or cases where public health epidemiologists have determined that infection is highly likely because a person exhibited symptoms and had close contact with someone who tested positive. The number of epidemiologically-linked cases represents a very small portion of the reported cases.

**The total number of people tested may not include all negative results. 

El Paso County has reported 3,102 positive cases (+43) and 116 deaths (+1).

Pueblo County has reported 444 positive cases (+12) and 31 deaths (unchanged).
