The dataset provides number of new and cumulative COVID-19 cases over time among Santa Clara County residents. A case is someone who tests positive for COVID-19 using viral testing performed in a lab. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data Notes: Cases are reported by the date that the specimens were collected for testing. Values for the most recent 5 days are likely to increase as additional results are received.
The dataset provides information about the demographics and characteristics of COVID-19 cases by racial/ethnic groups among Santa Clara County residents. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data notes: The Other category for the race/ethnicity graph includes American Indian/Alaska Native and people who identify as multi-racial.
The dataset summarizes the average rate of COVID-19 tests completed by date among Santa Clara County residents by major healthcare systems in the county. The daily average rate of tests is the daily average number of tests completed over the past 7 days per 100,000 people served by the individual healthcare system. Each ‘test’ or ‘testing incident’ represents at least one specimen tested per person, per day. This does not represent the number of individuals tested, as some people are tested multiple times over time because of the risk of frequent exposure. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data notes: The State of California has defined an initial goal of at least 150 tests per day per 100,000 people. Bay Area County Health Officers set a goal of 200 tests per day per 100,000 people.
The dataset provides information on the number of hospitalized patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19. Data on hospitalized patients are provided by reporting hospitals and represent a snapshot of the hospitals’ patient census and capacity at that point in time. These data may vary greatly day to day as they are only accurate at the time hospitals report the data. Source: Santa Clara County Emergency Medical Services. Data Notes: A Person Under Investigation (PUI) is an individual that is believed to have COVID-19 based on symptoms. New COVID-19 patients represent either newly admitted patients with COVID-19 or PUIs already hospitalized that then test positive for COVID-19. Percent represents the percentage of staffable beds for each level of care that are occupied by patients with COVID-19. Percentages are provided as a rolling 7-day average.
The dataset provides the total daily number of test for COVID-19 among Santa Clara County residents. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange.

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 positivity rate is the percent of positive tests out of total tests performed.
