Provided below are two charts addressing the daily number of COVID cases
reported in Leon County and the daily testing positivity rate.
Based on information provided by Leon County government, both of these
metrics are determining factors in evaluating how the virus is spreading in the community and a factor in when the mask mandate might be lifted.
The chart below shows the daily positive cases (blue) and a 7-day average
trend line (yellow). After a 10-14 day increase in cases from June 23rd to July 5th, the trend line shows a decline from July 5th to July 12th.
Since July 12th, there has been a slight increase, but for most part, the number of daily cases has flattened during this period. The average number of daily cases during this time has been approximately 100.
The chart below shows the daily positive COID-19 test rate for Leon County from July 16th through July 28th. Since July 20th, the positivity rate has been trending down.
