New coronavirus outbreaks reported at Colorado casino, restaurants, police department, nursing homes

There have been 446 COVID-19 outbreaks in Colorado since March, and 183 of them are still considered active.

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has released its weekly updated list of COVID-19 outbreaks across the state.

New additions include the Ameristar Casino in Black Hawk, the city of Woodland Park, the Colorado State Penitentiary and the Englewood Police Department.

The JBS meat processing plant in Greeley continues to be the deadliest workplace in the state. Six employees have died since April, and there are 287 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among its workforce – an increase of only one case since last week, with no new deaths. 

The outbreak at the Sterling Correctional Facility remains the largest in the state, with 564 inmates and 36 staff members testing positive for the novel coronavirus since April. There have been no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the facility since last week.

There are also 100 confirmed COVID-19 cases among the homeless population in Denver (and as many as 116), making it the fourth-largest outbreak by resident cases in Colorado.

The number of deaths and new cases of COVID-19 tied to nursing homes and long-term care centers is falling significantly. For much of the pandemic the deadliest outbreaks in Colorado were centered around these facilities. While the virus continues to prey on our most vulnerable neighbors, the numbers are moving in the right direction. 

"When transmission went down in the community, there was a corresponding decrease of new cases in nursing homes," said Doug Farmer, president & CEO of the Colorado Health Care Association. "It’s still kind of early to analyze why certain things happened and why they didn’t. I think it’s always easier to learn those things in retrospect."

The three week average of data released by the CDPHE shows around 12 people died per week in July after testing positive for COVID-19 in a senior care facility. Compare that to the end of May when the three week average showed more than 60 people died every week.  

"The decisions that get made at a state level or at a local level ultimately wind up at the door of a long-term care community," said Farmer.
