The Colorado Sun is tracking coronavirus cases in Colorado in an effort to ensure citizens know when the disease has reached their communities and how prevalent it is. We update this page daily.

The first two cases in the state were announced on Thursday, March 5, 2020. We now know, however, that the disease may have arrived in Colorado as early as January.

Health officials are testing thousands of people each day in order to track and try to slow the spread of the virus.

Gov. Jared Polis declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, in an effort to best respond to the situation. Since then, he has issued dozens of executive orders to try to slow the spread of the virus.

There are at least 434,654 people who have tested positive for the virus in Colorado or are considered positive cases because they have symptoms of COVID-19 and are a close contact of someone who has the disease.

At least 311 people with confirmed coronavirus infections are currently hospitalized.

As many as 5,995 people who have caught the virus died, 5,986 of them directly from the disease.

At least 990,508 people have received a first coronavirus vaccine dose in Colorado and at least 543,727 are fully immunized.

The Sun will update this map when new information from public health officials is released, typically at 4 p.m. each day.
