Data from Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment shows six new coronavirus outbreaks in Boulder County, while county case data did not update Wednesday.

Outbreaks have been determined at Aunt Alice’s Kitchen in Longmont, Bixby School in Boulder, Life Care Center of Longmont, MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care of Boulder, The Learning Experience in Lafayette and TLC Learning Center in Longmont.

The University of Colorado Boulder’s coronavirus outbreak, determined Sept. 23, shows 20 staff and 1,570 attendees, or students, have tested positive for the virus to date. There are also 188 students considered probable for the virus.

Boulder County’s coronavirus dashboard did not update Wednesday with new cases because of an upload error, Boulder County Public Health spokesperson Chana Goussetis said.

“A lab uploaded all negative tests results instead of all positive test results. It will take us the evening to sort through the data, so we will have the next data update on our website tomorrow,” Goussetis said Wednesday afternoon.

As of Tuesday, Boulder County sits at 5,544 cases and 85 deaths.

State data shows the outbreak at Aunt Alice’s Kitchen was determined Oct. 12, and eight staff members have tested positive.

“We are having to close temporarily to abide by all COVID regulations that the health department set forth through the CDC and other organizations to keep the public safe,” a post on Facebook from Aunt Alice’s Kitchen said Oct. 14. “Our No. 1 concern is the health of our staff and customers.”

The restaurant reopened Oct. 16 and all staff members who tested positive are quarantining, a restaurant employee said.

The outbreak at Bixby School was determined Monday, data shows, with one staff member and one attendee testing positive for the virus. A representative from Bixby School could not be reached for comment.

This is the center’s second outbreak. The first was determined April 3, data shows, and it was resolved May 12. There were 15 residents who tested positive, seven who were considered probable, eight deaths linked to the virus, one death considered probable, seven staff who tested positive and six staff considered probable.

The outbreak at MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care in Boulder was determined Oct. 21. Data shows two residents and two staff have tested positive. Representatives could not be reached for comment.

The Learning Experience had a coronavirus outbreak determined Monday with two staff members testing positive.
