The county is launching a COVID-19 case rate map, which shows the impact of the new coronavirus on cities and communities.
Interactive maps allow users to identify the medical record rate per 100,000 residents in cities and communities or by zip code. The map also shows where each area belongs to different status levels, and whether their medical record rates and positive test rates are rising or falling.
County Public Health Officer MPH Wilma Wooten, MPH, said: “The city has previously requested maps to determine conditions during a pandemic.” “The map provides the city with a clearer picture of how COVID-19 affects residents. , And will help them determine whether to take more radical actions to implement public health guidance to slow the spread of the virus.”;
The map is a new tool used by the county to monitor COVID-19, which has seen a significant increase in the number of cases in the area.
