COVID-19 Data Summary

Following CDPHE's announcement regarding a change in its reporting of COVID-19 deaths, Weld County has begun the process of updating its data. The result will be a decrease in the number of deaths in Weld County from COVID-19. Changes in this data will be seen on the Weld County Data Dashboard the week of May 25. For more information, please read the data adjustment press release

The number of cases reported do not represent the total number of actual cases. Case counts reflect only Weld County residents with a positive COVID-19 test or residents who are identified as probable cases during public health investigation. The number of probable cases represent a very small portion of the reported cases. Although originally assigned to Weld County, cases may be re-assigned to another county if the permanent address is determined to be outside of Weld. Data are updated daily at 4:00 p.m. and may not reflect the number of cases in real-time. Beginning July 1, 2020, case information will not be posted on weekends or holidays but will be updated appropriately on the next business day.

To protect the privacy of individuals, Weld County will not publicly share any identifying information about COVID-19 cases. COVID-19 is likely widespread throughout our communities. The most effective way to prevent COVID-19 is to stay home and avoid contact with everyone, including those in your household who are ill.

 

Cases are being reported by zip code to include individuals residing in unincorporated Weld County. This is a more accurate representation of Weld cases since the county spans such a large geographic region. Some zip codes encompass several small towns and unincorporated parts of Weld County. Displaying the data in this manner can protect towns from the stigma of a high case count when in fact the cases may be spread over a wider geographic area.

Zip codes with fewer than 5 cases are suppressed on the chart, or represented as <5, to ensure individual privacy. Just because a zip code may have fewer than 5 cases does not mean residents should ease up on physical distancing and other preventative measures. Many cases in the community have not been identified.

The map is divided into four health assessment regions within Weld County: North, Southwest, Southeast, and Greeley/Evans/Garden City. Three areas — North, Southwest, and Southeast — roughly correspond to the political boundaries of the county commissioners. The fourth area corresponds to the municipality boundaries of Greeley, Evans, and Garden City as of 2020. Some zip codes span multiple regions. Noticeably, the Greeley/Evans/Garden City region has far more cases than the other three regions. This can be attributed to the fact that the region accounts for about one-third of Weld County's total population.

Click on a zip code bar to highlight the area of the county covered by that zip code on the map to the right. From there you can see in which of the four health survey regions that zip code is located. Regional case totals are reported by town, not zip code. Case counts by region may not equal the total number of reported cases at the top of the page due to missing location information in the state database. These will be corrected as soon as possible.
