Case Rates by ZIP Code
Two types of case rate are available for each ZIP Code:
- The County of San Diego
7-dayaverage case rates
that reports the average number of new cases each day during the first seven days of the last 14 days, per 100,000 people. The site also includes a map
aligned to the tier system used by the
Blueprint for a Safer Economy,
that illustrates transmission rates within each of the county’s ZIP codes and
- An unofficial 14-day case rate is also available. This case rate gives the number of cases that
were reported over the previous 14-day period, per 100,000 people. This metric
is not used by the county or state, but is included as a key indicator by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in their
Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making. Click here for
a brief video overview of the CDC indicators and on the 14-day case rate.
This rate is updated each Tuesday using data from the
previous 14-day period.
School leaders are encouraged to consult with public health experts for interpreting these metrics and to determine how each should be applied in decision making.
