Public health information is available regarding radiation

March 16, 2011


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.
