COVID-19 Maps

I’ve put together a couple of different county-based map visualizations to show recent trends in cases. I also have another page with additional resources for local information about coronavirus in your county or region.

I also have a Daily Changes by County page showing the Daily New Cases, Hospitalizations, and Death for each county in Georgia. You can click on a county on the map or use a sortable table with all counties and their data.

Active Cases (Previous 2 Weeks)

Georgia doesn’t track recoveries, but the following maps show the number of new cases that were reported for each county in the past two weeks, which gives a rough idea of how many known cases might be active in each county. Maps will be updated daily.

  • View the map by raw number of new cases per county or the new case rate per 100K for each county.
  • Click on the legend to highlight the counties in that range.
  • Click on a county to see the number of new cases, as well as the new cases per 100K rate.

Case Change Trends (Week-over-Week)

I use a sliding color range to discrete groups to better show the size of case changes per county. Dark green counties have case counts that decreased by a lot, and dark red counties have case counts that increased by a lot. Counties with little to no changes week-over-week are light gray.

The maps below are designed to show you where cases have increased or decreased from the previous week.

  • View the map by raw number of case change per county or the case change per 100K for each county.
  • Click on the legend to highlight the counties in that range.
  • Click on a county to see the number of new cases in the past 7 days, as well as the change from the previous 7 days.

Daily Average New Cases

I had a request for a graph of daily average new cases by county. This uses ranges similar to the “Key Metrics for Covid Suppression” by Harvard Global Health Institute, although I chose not to include counties with 5 or fewer cases per week. I also divided the bottom two categories into <5 and 5-10 instead of <1 and 1-10. I may revisit this in the future, but wanted to provide some more distinction among counties with lower daily case counts.
