COVID-19 Testing Dashboards

This dashboard provides the total daily testing for COVID-19 in Santa Clara County. We monitor testing to ensure enough tests are completed to slow the spread of COVID-19. With adequate testing, the Public Health Department can help isolate those who test positive and use contact tracing to notify anyone who may have been exposed. The test turnaround time highlighted in the top banner is the current average number of days between a specimen being collected for testing and the result of that test at the lab. This is a good estimate for when someone should expect to wait before they know the results of their test. Also shown, is the average number of days between a specimen being collected for testing and result of that test being reported to the Public Health Department. When this turnaround time is shorter, the Public Health Department is able to isolate cases and identify and quarantine contacts quicker – a crucial part of successful case investigation and contact tracing.
 

This dashboard is updated Monday-Friday and will not be updated on holidays.

Data Notes: A test represents at least one specimen tested per person per day. Some people will have multiple specimens collected and tested during the same visit but are only counted once per day. If a person is tested multiple times on different days then he or she will be counted for each day he or she was tested. The test positivity rate is the percent of positive tests out of total tests performed. The 7-day average positivity rate represents the most recent daily positivity rate averaged over the prior seven days. The test positivity rate highlighted in the top banner of the dashboard has a 7-day lag, because data for the last 7 days are preliminary and will likely change as additional results are received. The 7-day rolling average of specimen collection to result is the average number of days between a specimen being collected for testing and the result of that test at the lab. The 7-day rolling average of specimen collection to report is the average number of days between a specimen being collected for testing and the result of that test being reported to the Public Health Department.​
