The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on Wednesday added “Major League Baseball All-Star Events” to its list of COVID-19 outbreaks.
Major League Baseball estimated that over 49,000 people attended the game, with thousands more participating in nearby fan activities. The health department did not say what events those who subsequently tested positive attended. The outbreak was reported on July 21.
The state advises people to get tested if they think they’ve been exposed or if they have a combination of the following symptoms:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing
- Muscle or body pain
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
The health department still lists last month’s Country Jam music festival in Mesa County as an active outbreak, with 23 cases from staff and attendees. This event featured performances by Luke Combs, Toby Keith and Carrie Underwood.
