Colorado health officials mum on details of coronavirus outbreaks at five residential health care facilities

The Denver Post: Colorado public health officials have revealed they know of at least five “outbreaks” of the new coronavirus inside residential and other non-hospital health care facilities in the state and have notified people who may have been exposed.

But for two days officials have declined to give details, such as how many people may have been exposed or where the facilities are located, despite rising concerns about clusters that can accelerate person-to-person spread of the virus.

These facilities in Colorado rank among at least 146 nursing homes nationwide where federal authorities on Monday said coronavirus cases are confirmed. Roughly 15,000 nursing homes around the nation house 1.3 million people.
