About This Dashboard​

A "case" is defined here as an individual who tests positive for COVID using specimen testing performed in a lab. Cases are reported by the date that the specimen was collected for testing. The 7-day rolling average of new cases is the number of new cases each day in the prior seven days.

Demographics of COVID cases, including age group, gender and race/ethnicity, can be viewed by cumulative COVID cases, or COVID cases that have occurred in the last 90 days.

A COVID-related death is defined here as an individual living in Santa Clara County who was lab-confirmed to have COVID, and had COVID listed as a cause of death or a significant condition contributing to their death on their death certificate. Deaths are further defined by whether the individual resided at a Long Term Care Facility (LTCF) at the time of their death. Deaths are reported by the date of death.

Demographics of COVID deaths, including age group, gender, and race/ethnicity, can be viewed by cumulative COVID-related deaths, or COVID-related deaths that have occurred in the last 120 days.
