APH adds Covid-19 testing rate dashboard

Monday, September 21, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

The city of Austin has added another Covid-19 dashboard to its roster, bringing the total to four. The newest, the Testing Rate Dashboard, will display weekly Covid-19 testing rates, with an emphasis on the areas seeing the most cases. The dashboard will be updated on Tuesdays by 6 p.m. As of last week, the highest increase was in ZIP code 78724; the highest percent of positive test results was in 78617; and the highest percent increase in new cases was in 78735. The city also has dashboards to measure key indicators for staging, to track infection rates in long-term care facilities and to collect general information about Covid-19.
