Health officials in Colorado have a new indication about why the coronavirus is spreading rapidly within the state, and it’s mostly due to the same reasons it’s spiking across the country.

What’s going on?

The list includes:

  • Schools
  • Child care centers
  • Social gatherings
  • Restaurants
  • Grocery stores
  • Officies

The list included specific social gatherings that led to an outbreak. Those social gatherings included:

  • A bunco night
  • A dinner party
  • A wedding

Meanwhile: Utah could see a rise in COVID-19 cases as cool weather arrives in the state, according to the Deseret News. Cool weather could drive people inside, which would allow people to spread the virus quicker.
