One of the new fatalities was a 39-year-old Florida man who died in Park County on Sunday. “Park County Public Health conducted a disease tracing investigation and have determined that the risk to Park County Citizens is low,” the county said in a news release.

The new confirmed cases represent an increase of more than 400 over Saturday. Health officials in Colorado have warned that there are potentially tens of thousands of people infected in the state but that their cases haven’t been identified because of a dearth of testing.
