Top Stories

DENVER – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) confirmed 30 new positive cases in Colorado, based on overnight test results.

That brings the total number of positive cases to date to 131.

Following CDC, all presumptive positive cases are now considered positive.

The CDPHE website states, “Originally we classified cases as ‘presumptive positive’ until they could be re-tested by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC confirmed we no longer need to send positive cases for re-testing because the test they perform is identical to the CDPHE testing. Therefore, all positive cases reported here are confirmed positive.”

The test results include 25 from the state lab and 5 from private testing facilities that are receiving samples from health care providers. The state can confirm completed test results on 758 people by the state lab since testing started on February 28. Private labs are not required to report negative numbers to the state, so we are not reporting total testing numbers for the state.

CDPHE is reporting aggregate testing results data once daily, approximately mid-day.
