Contra Costa Health Services introduced a new suite of data dashboards this week in an effort to better reflect California's new metrics for evaluating the progress of its counties in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
An important feature of the new dashboards is the date when a positive test result is recorded. Beginning this week, the county will count test results based on when the test was performed.
In addition, the turnaround time for all test results in Contra Costa County is now down to 2-4 days, and health officials say that same-day tests are available. Simply call to schedule an appointment: (844) 421-0804.
Since testing began, Contra Costa County has reported 14,885 positive cases, with 1,984 positive cases in Concord. To review a demographic and geographic breakdown of cases, please see the County's COVID-19 dashboard.
