Colorado to stop reporting most COVID-19 outbreaks

Axios Denver: In a major blow to transparency, Gov. Jared Polis’ administration is no longer reporting detailed data about COVID-19 outbreaks to the public.

Effective Wednesday, the state will only report outbreaks in high-risk settings, such as nursing homes, child care facilities and prisons, putting COVID-19 in line with tracking for the flu.

Outbreaks in other settings won’t need to be reported to the state, and the information published will no longer include active case counts, county-level data or breakdowns by area.
