Boulder County reports five new or probable cases of coronavirus

Boulder County public health officials reported five new positive or probable cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the county’s total to 780.

There were no new deaths reported by Boulder County Public Health, as that number remains fixed at 54.

Also unchanged Wednesday was the number of those who have been hospitalized, which stands at 144. A total of 302 Boulder County residents have recovered from COVID-19, and Boulder County epidemiologists have 134 disease investigations ongoing.

Boulder County Public Health spokesperson Chana Goussetis counseled against complacency, as the area continues its adaptation to safer at home measures, which includes staying home as much as possible, and wearing facial coverings and maintaining six-foot distancing while in public places.

“Regardless of the number of people in each city who have or have had COVID-19, every person must take steps to protect themselves and others,” Goussetis wrote in an email.

“We do not yet know if having the illness creates immunity, and if so, for how long. So, as we begin to open up business and workplaces, it is more important than ever that every resident continue to take precautions.”
