Coronavirus: Vaccination and test positivity rates in Orange County for Aug. 25

The map below is from the OC Health Care Agency’s dashboard update on Wednesday, Aug. 25, and shows coronavirus test positivity rates – the rate at which tests taken are coming back positive for the virus – by ZIP code.

Case rates and testing positivity (which are both provided as the average over seven days, lagging for a week to give time for more complete data to be factored in) are updated each Wednesday, reflecting information up to the prior day for testing data, and same day for case data. Calculations are based on guidelines from the California Department of Public Health.

**Note: ZIP codes with less than 20 cases can result in unstable rate estimates and should be interpreted with caution.

Orange County’s daily case rate went from 20.2 cases per 100,000 people last week to 22.2 per 100,000 this week, which would have been in the purple tier (most restrictive tier) of the California Department of Public Health’s four-tier color system, if it was still in place. The test positivity rate in the county is 8% (7-day average with 7-day lag), down from 8.1% last week, which would be in the purple tier as well.
