Businesses only: Report Cases and Outbreaks to TCHD
Businesses in Adams County and Arapahoe County should use our COVID-19 Case Reporting Form for Businesses to report multiple COVID-19 cases in the workplace to us. An investigator will reach out to you to assess potential outbreak status and provide disease control measures to implement in your workplace. This form should not be used by schools or healthcare facilities. If you are a school or healthcare facility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This form should be completed by facility owners/operators/managers, not individual employees. Businesses should not wait to hear from us prior to excluding sick individuals from the workplace and contact tracing to identify and exclude exposed employees.
For additional information on addressing cases in the workplace, see the CDC's Case Investigation and Contact Tracing in Non-healthcare Workplaces: Information for Employers. Download our Template Line List for a resource to assist with information gathering for your case investigation and contact tracing.
Please email email@example.com with any Covid-19-related inquiries.
