Due to lags between infection and hospitalization, the estimated effective reproductive number (Re) reflects the spread of infections approximately two weeks prior to the data of the last observed hospitalization.

Figure 5. Daily hours away from home (SafeGraph) is averaged across census block groups within the region and across the state of Colorado. The faint lines show the daily data, and the thick lines represent a smoothed average over time. The ribbon below the time away from home displays the population-weighted mean daily temperature across the state from gridMET.
