Boulder County reported 12 new coronavirus cases on Friday with no new deaths.

That brings the county’s case total to 1,340, with 175 hospitalized. There are 107 disease investigations in progress and an additional 12 individuals recovered, bringing that total to 548.

Of Friday’s 12 new cases, seven were reported between ages 20 and 29 — the age group that was linked to the recent spike in cases.

Friday marks one week since the city issued an emergency order allowing civil enforcement of gatherings to combat the spread of the virus.

City staff are continuing to review nuisance complaints to determine if additional properties need to be sent Nuisance Abatement notices, city spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh said.

“Each individual case will be responded to and escalated based on the merits of the case,” she said in an email. “The city’s goal is to achieve awareness and public cooperation in complying with all applicable laws to protect the health and safety of all members of the Boulder community.”

On June 19 the city also announced 12 addresses that were identified as “chronic violators” between March 16 and May 25 based on large gatherings or the number of noise violations.

As of Friday, Aulabaugh said the city is “not aware of any properties that have committed a second offense that would trigger the next step in furtherance of an abatement action.”

“The city has already received responses from several property owners who indicated an interest in curtailing the negative behavior of their tenants,” she added.

Across the state, there are 31,796 cases. Of those, 5,392 have been hospitalized. There have been 1,673 deaths and 1,482 of those were linked to the virus. Of Colorado’s more than 5.7 million population, 304,759 people have been tested.
