The Trader Joe's at 661 Logan Street is experiencing its third COVID-19 outbreak.
The number of COVID-19 outbreaks identified on December 8 by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment took a substantial jump over the list from the week of Thanksgiving. The newly identified outbreaks include several retail outlets, including a pair of busy Denver grocery stores.

The Trader Joe's at 661 Logan Street is experiencing its third outbreak, following investigations in November 2020 and this past March that were subsequently resolved. The Safeway at 757 East 20th Avenue is undergoing its second outbreak; the previous one was identified in May. Other retailers with fresh outbreaks include a Walmart in Montezuma County, a Shane Co. jeweler in Westminster and a Denver dispensary.

Prior to June 1, state health officials declared an outbreak if two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers, attendees and others were tied to a particular setting within a fourteen-day period. Now this standard only applies to health-care or correctional facilities. An outbreak anywhere else requires at least five confirmed or probable cases over two weeks.

The 83 new or tweaked entries on the CDPHE's latest survey, updated on December 8, rose from 58 cited in the December 1 report. Of the current total, sixty sites have experienced outbreaks in the past.

The category that saw the biggest increase from last week was health care. The December 8 survey highlights 47 such facilities, more than double the 23 listed on December 1, and all but two of them specialize in senior care. One of the exceptions was a Montrose vaccine clinic that generated five staff cases, twelve attendee cases and one staff death.

Twelve K-12 schools made their first appearance on the roster; eleven were added on December 1. Additional outbreaks were confirmed at two colleges and six child-care centers.

Other outbreak settings of note? A motorcycle dealership in Denver, a sit-down restaurant in Northglenn, the Jefferson County 911 call center, a Jeffco aircraft manufacturer, and the Buffalo Rose entertainment venue in Golden.
