According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, an outbreak means two or more confirmed cases in one facility within two weeks.
The state health department said a COVID-19 outbreak is considered over when 28 days have passed with no new illness.
After an outbreak, public health assesses the facility’s current practices and gives recommendations. Then the restaurant has to implement those measures.
Finally, the facility submits a final outbreak report to the health department, once the outbreak is considered over.
