UCHealth Training Center — Signs of Broncos Fever are reportedly being seen around Colorado – a cause for concern for doctors at UCHealth, as it’s been less than two weeks since the Broncos’ season opening win against Carolina.

This fandemic is highly contagious – and awareness of the symptoms of #BroncosFever is critical. The fever affects people’s minds and emotions, causing an uncontrollable need to show support for the Denver Broncos. Signs and symptoms include chest bumps, fist pumps, goose bumps, yelling at televisions and blue-and-orangeness around the face, chest and belly.

UCHealth doctors are frequently asked what treatments are available for the outbreak, and while there is no cure, there are remedies that can help relieve the symptoms. Entering to win an autographed Peyton Manning football on BroncosFever.com is highly effective. Donning of team clothing, merchandise, temporary tattoos, wigs, hair dyes, face paints, body paints, and generally anything in the colors orange or blue can all help.

“Anyone living in the Rocky Mountain region is especially prone to contracting Broncos Fever,” said Dr. Michelle Barron, an infectious disease expert with UCHealth. “Those who have traveled to and from the area recently can potentially spread it across the world, however, and we need to continue to monitor all cases.”

Fans are encouraged to stay up-to-date by visiting BroncosFever.com, following UCHealth on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and ALWAYS hashtagging #BroncosFever.
