  • The number of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases does not represent an accurate number of cases in DeKalb County, because not all who have symptoms are being tested. 

  • Note: Data is provisional and subject to change. Number of negative tests may be higher than reported, as laboratories are voluntarily reporting negative results.
