The CO Dept of Public Health defines an outbreak as two or more cases confirmed by a lab test found in a location. Focus on the Family has declared itself to be a church so it will make my list of church outbreaks. The El Paso County site indicates the outbreak is in the bookstore.

CO is one of the states which tracks outbreaks by location and does a great job of making data available to the public on a weekly basis.
