As of 11 a.m. May 28, here's where #SRQCounty COVID-19 cases have been detected in the county over the last 14 days. The map shows the “heat” or activity for the last 14 days, and the numbers in the legend are accumulative of all cases. This map was produced using data generated by the DOH to be searchable by zip code.
The data provided in the maps may differ because the local heat map incorporates data based on the physical address at the time of illness. The state reports data by zip code of residence. The local heat maps are designed as a planning tool to help the DOH better understand disease transmission and prevalence in our community. May 28 No information for likes
