Boulder County counted 125 coronavirus cases Friday, and the University of Colorado Boulder reported 64 new coronavirus cases from Thursday testing.

The 64 positive tests from CU Boulder were out of 913 screenings and 207 diagnostic tests. It is the first day this week the university saw an increase in single-day positive case numbers this week after numbers had been declining. CU Boulder reported 94 cases on Monday, 53 on Tuesday and 21 on Wednesday.

CU Boulder has reported 997 total positive tests through university testing this semester. Only those who get a test at the school are included in those numbers, and only on-campus students are required to take screening tests.

The school reports that there are 270 isolation spaces in use, which is 43% of the available space.

CU Boulder this week went to remote learning for at least two weeks as the state declared the Boulder campus an outbreak site. Boulder County on Thursday also issued an order banning gatherings in Boulder for people between the ages of 18 and 22, and also issued stay-at-home orders for three dozen University Hill addresses.

Positive cases from CU Boulder are included in county numbers if that individual is a county resident, Boulder County Public Health previously stated.

The 125 cases reported Friday brings the county total to 4,270 cases. Of those, 206 have been hospitalized and 1,029 have recovered. There are 195 disease investigations in progress and the death toll remains at 79.

Data updated Thursday shows 57,985 individuals have been tested in the county, with 4.2% of tests returning positive. The current five-day average percent of positive tests is 6.7.

Friday’s five-day average of new daily cases is 111. One week ago, the five-day average was 95.6.

Statewide, there have been 67,926 positive or probable cases. There have been 2,037 deaths among the cases, and of those, there have been 1,940 deaths because of the coronavirus. There have been 7,479 people hospitalized. Of Colorado’s roughly 5.7 million population, 867,943 people have been tested for the virus.
