1 Only health centers that responded having COVID-19 testing capacity are included, n=16.

2 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.

3 “Any test type” includes virus detection and antibody detection testing numbers. Care should be taken when drawing conclusions from combined testing numbers or in racial/ethnic minority percentages. Comparison of data in later weeks or in racial and/or ethnic minorities is subject to interpretation as the nature and purpose of antibody detection tests evolve over time.

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

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