CDC Updates on Wuhan Coronavirus

The CDC has created an information hub for doctors and other health care professionals to be informed about the novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, designated 2019-nCoV. There is limited information available so far about the virus, its symptoms, and specific treatment. The information hub has information on risk assessment, laboratory and clinical information, and how the CDC is responding to the outbreak. There are clinical criteria for monitoring patients suspected of contracting the virus, but these are evolving as more is learned about the virus. Make sure to check the links regularly for updated information.

To report a suspect case or for additional local guidance, please call the CDPHE Disease Reporting Line: 303-692-2700 or 303-370-9395 (after hours). The Tri-County Health Department is also posting Health Alert Network updates on the disease — their latest is here (pdf).
