CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

 

Below is COVID-19 weekly case count data current as of July 28, 2021.   

Weekly Update 7-28-21

 

SDHD has discontinued posting daily reports. You can find local COVID-19 data on the state dashboard at https://coronavirus.iowa.gov/, which is where much of this information came from, with the exception of the local hospitalization numbers. On the state dashboard, you can click on Woodbury County on the maps to filter the data for just our county. The total positive cases are calculated by going to the Positive Case Analysis page, clicking on Woodbury County to filter for just this county, and then adding together the individuals positive under both the PCR and Antigen sections.

The state dashboard is now being updated weekly on Wednesday afternoons.  

SDHD will continue to provide periodic updates on our website along with the rest of our communicable disease information, or as the situation warrants.

 

Past Weekly Reports

SDHD is no longer compiling full weekly reports; however, past updates can be found below. For updated state and local data, visit the State of Iowa COVID-19 dashboard at https://coronavirus.iowa.gov/.  

We have had some questions about why our percentage positivity did not always match what IDPH was reporting as a 14-day positivity rate. SDHD started calculating a weekly positivity rate in June 2020, because it provided a better statistic to trend than the daily positivity rate, which really varies from day to day. This was quite a while before IDPH started calculating their 14 day positivity. SDHD includes all of the negative tests over time for one individual unless they are from the same day, or the one day before or after. Each of these negative results is valuable and has the potential to be a positive result, or case, so they are all included in our denominator (number of tests). Once a person becomes positive, they are then only counted as one case.  IDPH calculates things a little bit differently.  IDPH was using a 14 day time frame and counting individuals instead of tests, so each individual was only accounted for once. For example, if during the 14 day period, a person is tested multiple times and they are all negative, it is counted as one test for IDPH's rate. Or if they are negative and later positive, only the positive result is counted. SDHD wants to keep our calculations consistent in order to better compare one week to the next and have a true trend. (NOTE: IDPH has changed their reporting to reflect tests instead of individuals).
