Hello, Denver! Here’s a clearinghouse of info on COVID-19 in the city. Each of these data visualizations updates daily, so you can always check back here to see how things are going.

You can get many of these numbers delivered straight to your inbox via our free newsletter – plus, you’ll get everything else you need to know about things happening in town.

Vaccinations

The following chart comes from numbers collected by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and distributed by Denver Public Health. We divided this tally of people who have received a “final vaccine” and divided it by 717,797, the city’s population. These can lag by a day or so.

Below is a map, created by Denver Public Health, that shows the percent of all residents in each neighborhood that have received at least one shot. Darker colors indicate more shots in arms. You can mouse over (or tap) neighborhoods to see individual data points.

Cases

Below is a chart of Denver’s seven-day cumulative tally of cases per 100,000 people. Basically, each day’s case rate is added to those of the six days prior. We’re presenting these numbers because it’s one of the major metrics Colorado is using to determine its “Dial 2.0” system, which dictates what kinds of restrictions a city must put in place.

The following chart is Denver’s positivity rate, which represents the number of positive cases returned from all tests on a given day. While the number of cases can tell us what’s going on in town, state officials have said this number is really the one to watch. If the rate goes up, it indicates more spread throughout the community.

Finally, here’s a map of neighborhoods that saw the most hospitalizations due to COVID-19. Darker colors represent higher hospitalization rates.

Denver Public Health, which publishes this map, notes on its website that the virus’ “disproportionate impact on neighborhoods and communities of color is critical.” It goes on to say that Denver Public Health is “working hard” to make sure testing, vaccines and other resources are available in these neighborhoods.

Denver’s early rollout of community vaccination clinics have been focused in some of the neighborhoods with the highest COVID hospitalization rates: Montbello, Barnum, Northeast Park Hill and Bear Valley.
