Enteric (Intestinal) Illness Monitoring

En Español

Enteric Illness Dashboard

Enteric illnesses are infections in the intestines caused by germs like viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Some of these illnesses are serious enough that they have to be reported. These include:

  • Campylobacteriosis
  • Giardiasis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Shigellosis
  • STEC (Shiga toxin-producing E. coli)

We track these illnesses locally to keep healthcare centers and the public updated on how often they are occurring in the area.

When a Boulder County resident visits a medical provider with stomach issues like watery or bloody diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, bloating, or on-and-off constipation or diarrhea, they may be tested for these illnesses. If the test is positive, it gets reported.

The charts below use data from the Colorado Electronic Reportable Disease Reporting System (CEDRS).

Preventing Enteric Illnesses

To prevent these types of illnesses, you should:

  • Wash your hands properly.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables before eating them.
  • Avoid swallowing water from places like pools and lakes.

Dashboard Updates

This dashboard is updated once a week on Monday before 5 p.m.
