Georgia is a large state, with huge differences between the Atlanta metro and rural counties. As a result, it’s important to know how to get information about coronavirus in your local area. This page shows various sources for local and regional data about the spread of COVID-19.
The graph below shows county hotspots based on a combination of case rate (confirmed and antigen combined) and PCR positivity, as well as the CDC community transmission metrics for each county in Georgia. See additional county/regional maps.
The Daily Changes by County page on this stie shows the Daily New Cases, Hospitalizations, and Death for each county in Georgia in a map or table format. You can click on a county on the map or use a sortable table with all counties and their data. Note that on Mondays or after holidays, these numbers contain all changes from the previous day that GA DPH reported. For example, Monday data includes increases from Saturday – Monday.
County Information on Georgia DPH Dashboard
The Georgia DPH COVID-19 Dashboard provides county-level information on total cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, as well as case and death rates per 100K people in a table format.
The Georgia DPH COVID-19 Dashboard also has a graph of cases, test positivity, and deaths over time, by date of report, as well as by date of case onset, test collection, or date of death. You can select your county from the map or the drop-down, then view detailed graphs for your specific county. These graphs are best viewed on a computer, or by turning your phone sideways (landscape mode). You can zoom in on the graph on your phone or with the scroll wheel on your mouse to see only the most recent days.
Remember the last 14 days of the by Onset and by Date of Death graphs are uncertain though as DPH doesn’t yet know about the most recent illnesses until labs are taken and cases reported. Learn more about the Georgia DPH Dashboard.
Additional County Data from GA DPH
- County Indicator Reports (updated on Mondays)
- School-Aged Surveillance Data Reports (updated on Fridays)
- GA DPH Vaccine Distribution Dashboard (updated weekdays by 3pm; not mobile-friendly, computer recommended to view)
Regional Hospital Data from Georgia GIO
The following pages are updated by the Georgia Georgia Geospatial Information Office 7 days/week, usually by 3pm (as well as occasional updates at other times). Data is submitted by hospitals throughout the state. These sites are not mobile-friendly, so a computer is recommended to view these pages. Select your region from the drop-down in the top-right corner of the page.
- Hospital COVID Census by Region (separate graphs for current hospitalizations of COVID + patients AND patients under investigation for COVID)
- Hospital Bed & Ventilator Capacity by Region (for all patients, not just COVID patients)
County/Regional Case & Death Graphs from ARC
The Atlanta Regional Commission has created a really nice interactive COVID-19 map and graphing page to see local information for your metro area, region, or county. Although it was created by the ARC, it has data for all of Georgia. You can view cases or deaths by raw numbers or per 100K, for the whole state by region, or for a region by county, and more.
They have some additional information at Atlanta Regional Commission COVID Response web site.
Local/Regional Hospitalization Data
Some hospital systems provide their own COVID dashboards for their local area. Below are links to the pages I was able to find. I wish more hospitals reported this data to the public.
- Augusta University Medical Center (Augusta)
- Hamilton Health (Dalton)
- Northeast Georgia Health System (Gainesville)
- Phoebe Health (Albany)
- South Georgia Medical Center (Valdosta)
- Southeast Georgia Health System (Brunswick) – Click on the COVID link in the banner.
- Tanner Health (Carroll County)
- Wellstar Hospital
Some regional health districts also share hospitalization numbers for their regions. See links in the section below.
Georgia Regional Health District Web Sites
Georgia DPH is divided up into 18 different regional health districts, and each of these districts has their own web site with local information about COVID testing locations and testing events, as well as other information about COVID. Some of the districts also provide detailed metrics, including case and death numbers by zip code, hospital availability, etc. The North Central district even provided a detailed report county-by-county with data on specific outbreaks known to the public health department.
Your regional health department will also be able to direct you to free testing locations and events in your area. (How to get tested for COVID in Georgia.)
Find your regional health district in the list below and see what information they offer on their web site. I have provided specific links to pages with more detailed data where available. I also encourage you to follow your regional public health department on Facebook and/or Twitter for the latest news in your area.
