The fashion designer claims Colorado has a “window of opportunity” to take control of COVID ahead of Christmas.

As of Monday, the number of hospitalizations and COVID-19 cases in Colorado has remained stable or improving, although it will be clear by the end of this week if the virus will spread across Thanksgiving tables.

As of Monday afternoon, 1,379 people were hospitalized statewide with confirmed COVID-19, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. That’s a small spike – 11 people – since Friday.

However, the number of new hospitalizations is still declining, which suggests that hospitalizations will continue to move in the right direction, said Beth Carlton, assistant professor of environmental and occupational health at the Colorado School of Public Health and contributor to the COVID-19 government simulation. … command.

Cases reported in the week ending Sunday were up more than 900 from the previous week, which is not surprising as the lack of testing on holidays tends to lower the number of cases. However, fewer people tested positive than in the third week of November, and the percentage of positive test results remained relatively stable. This suggests that the situation is at least not getting worse.

However, that doesn’t mean the good times are back. Half of the hospitals reporting to the state said they expected staff shortages next week and about 94% of intensive care beds are full – a significant improvement from last week, but still well above the normal level of roughly 80% capacity.

Overall positive trends mean Colorado has a “window of opportunity” to reduce sickness and hospitalizations before people get ready for vacation at the end of the year, Carlton said.

“It is much safer to gather when community transmission is low,” she said.
