Daily COVID-19 Case Tracker

  • The COVID-19 Case Tracker is designed to give our community a transparent look at the prevalence of COVID-19 in Estes Park Schools. The dashboard is updated each morning with the newest case information to include positive cases, isolations and quarantines due to these cases, as well as identified outbreaks.

Outbreak Information

  • When a school has two or more unrelated cases in a short time period, LCDHE considers it to be an outbreak. Outbreak status means that health officials with LCDHE will monitor even more carefully for any cases at that school. The following schools are currently designated as outbreak locations (date of outbreak designation):

    Estes Park School District Designated Outbreaks:

    • Estes Park High School (February 8, 2021) -Resolved 3/15/2021

     

Important Quarantine Guidance!

  • Even though there are several different lengths of quarantine guidance covered by the CDPHE, Estes Park Schools will be following the 10 day quarantine guidelines.  

What is considered Close Contact?

  • Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

    * Individual exposures added together over a 24-hour period (e.g., three 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes). Data are limited, making it difficult to precisely define “close contact;” however, 15 cumulative minutes of exposure at a distance of 6 feet or less can be used as an operational definition for contact investigation. Factors to consider when defining close contact include proximity (closer distance likely increases exposure risk), the duration of exposure (longer exposure time likely increases exposure risk), whether the infected individual has symptoms (the period around onset of symptoms is associated with the highest levels of viral shedding), if the infected person was likely to generate respiratory aerosols (e.g., was coughing, singing, shouting), and other environmental factors (crowding, adequacy of ventilation, whether exposure was indoors or outdoors). Because the general public has not received training on proper selection and use of respiratory PPE, such as an N95, the determination of close contact should generally be made irrespective of whether the contact was wearing respiratory PPE. At this time, differential determination of close contact for those using fabric face coverings is not recommended.

Confirmed Cases and Probable Cases (LCDHE Definition)

    • Confirmed case – Someone who has tested positive for COVID-19; can be Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) or rapid test. (NOT an antibody test)

    • Probable case – Someone who has had known close contact with a confirmed case and has at least one critical/major (loss of taste smell, new or worsening cough, fever, shortness of breath) or two minor symptoms (runny nose, headache, nausea, muscle or body aches, etc.) and does not have a negative PCR test for COVID-19.
