Hospitalizations of people with confirmed cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, have been declining since April 24. As of Sunday, 722 people with the disease were in Colorado hospitals.
An epidemiological curve graph released by CDPHE also shows new cases declining in Colorado.
Health officials have said it’s possible cases will begin to rise again as restrictions on Coloradans’ movement are relaxed this month.
