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 Only health centers that responded having COVID-19 testing capacity are included, n=23. Percentages may not add to 100% due to health centers not reporting turnaround times or rounding to the hundredths.
