The individual had traveled to California and was notified upon their return to Colorado that two people at the event they attended in California had subsequently tested positive for the disease.

The individual has symptoms and is isolated but is doing well. All of the individuals who may have come in close contact with them have been identified and will be contacted this evening. This is the first Boulder County resident to test positive for the illness.

The person is considered “presumptive positive” until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirm the cases.
