Boulder County on Friday reported two additional residents with COVID-19 who died and 80 new coronavirus cases.

Chana Goussetis, Boulder County Public Health spokesperson, said that during a quality assurance process this week, public health officials identified two additional deaths. The deaths occurred on Jan. 7 and Jan. 13. The people who died were in their 60s and 70s and were not residents of long-term care facilities.

The new deaths bring the county’s total death toll to 219. To date, Boulder County Public Health reported that there have been 16,729 positive or probable cases. There have been 445 people hospitalized. As of Friday, 34 patients were hospitalized due to COVID-19. The current five-day average percent positivity rate was 4%. There are 18,538 Boulder County residents who have received a vaccine dose, with 3,108 people fully vaccinated, county data shows.

Boulder has 6,255 residents who have tested positive for the virus — the most in the county, according to data updated by the county on Thursday.  The data showed Longmont had the second greatest number of residents who have tested positive at 5,773; followed by 1,365 unincorporated Boulder County cases; 1,362 Lafayette cases; 723 Louisville cases; 373 Erie cases; 297 Superior cases; 66 Lyons cases; 20 Nederland cases and 18 cases from people experiencing homelessness.

CU Boulder spokesperson Joshua Lindenstein said that there was a data-entry error regarding campus isolation space. Lindenstein said the campus hasn’t yet had to use its isolation space this month and that the dashboard had since been updated to reflect this. Since Jan. 4, there have been 125 total positive results; 1,660 diagnostic tests; and 7,334 monitoring tests.
