1 The reported number of patients tested do not represent the same patients included in the reported number of patients tested positive due to a lag between the date the specimen is collected and the availability of test results. Positivity rates cannot be inferred by dividing patients tested positive by patients tested for this reason.

2 Percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding to the hundredths.

3 Includes Hispanic/Latino and Non-Hispanic/Latino.

4 Percentages are calculated using the number of health centers that have distributed test kits received through the HRSA COVID-19 Testing Supply Program as the denominator.

5 Percentages are calculated using the number of health centers that have distributed N95 masks received through the HRSA Health Center COVID-19 N95 Mask Program as the denominator.
