Radiation concerns

Calls are coming in to local and state health departments regarding radiation from the Japan nuclear plant crisis.

March 16, 2011

Public health information is available regarding radiation

As the local health departments and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) have been getting a lot of questions about the impacts of radiation from Japan, we want to address this concern early.

For any questions, please call a statewide toll-free number, which will be staffed from 7 am - 11 pm weekdays, and 9 am - 5 pm on weekends:

In addition, the same information is on CDPHE's website Hot Topics. &

Please understand that this information may change, either due to a situation update, or as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) help to coordinate messages among all states.
