DENVER — Colorado has added about 18 active COVID-19 outbreaks to its current total since last week, according to the latest data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

Two cases of the novel coronavirus constitute an outbreak, and the numbers are cumulative, meaning if an entity has a certain number of cases, that doesn't mean all those people were sick at once.

For an outbreak to be resolved, CDPHE said 28 days must pass with no new illnesses.
