Larimer County Confirms 1st Case Of Coronavirus, Total In Colorado Grows To 11

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- The latest case of coronavirus in Colorado is in Larimer County. This raises the total of COVID-19 cases in Colorado to eleven as of Monday afternoon with the confirmation of two additional cases, one in Denver, one in Eagle County.

The latest case is a female in her 50s from Larimer County who has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

The first of the two cases confirmed on Monday afternoon is a female in her 70s in Eagle County with no known contact with an infected person, but does have a recent history of travel in the U.S.

The second is a female in her 30s in Denver with no known contact with an infected person and no recent travel.

This is based on overnight testing and considered presumptive until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention verifies the test.

This comes after two cases in Denver surfaced last Friday, along with three cases in Douglas County, one in Eagle County, one in El Paso County and the first case in Colorado, a man in his 30s who visited Summit County from out of state.

Administrators at St. Anne's Episcopal School in Denver closed early last Friday after they say a parent tested positive for coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control has done or will be conducting a test on the person, who the school says hasn't been on campus in the past month.

That school remained closed on Monday and Tuesday for cleaning. That same person also visited the Denver Country Club on Feb. 26 when he didn't exhibit symptoms. The family remains under quarantine.
