Metro Denver Partnership for Health COVID-19 Resources

Published: November 22, 2021 | Updated: November 26, 2021

MDPH began coordinating work groups in March 2020 to address how interested jurisdictions can prepare for their communities’ public health needs when the state's stay-at-home orders were lifted.

The goal of these work groups is to identify and inform strategies and action plans for how to mitigate increased spread of disease. The work groups are comprised of local and statewide public health and health care stakeholders. Throughout the planning and development of these proposals, MDPH ensured alignment with the governor’s office, and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) by having representatives from those agencies on its work groups. The groups' work continues as the state's response to COVID-19 continues to evolve.
