State Releases new Modeling Findings

The state health department received additional modeling results from an expert group of public health scientists today. The Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH) assembled the expert group, which relies on expertise from modeling scientists at ColoradoSPH and the University of Colorado School of Medicine at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, as well as experts from the University of Colorado Boulder and University of Colorado Denver. The models produced by the expert group are local, meaning models are based on Colorado data and assumptions apply specifically to Colorado, not national assumptions.
