About our featured graphic
As can be seen in our various Palm Beach graphics and reported on the news, there’s been a rise in cases in Palm Beach County since reopening May 11. We looked at our data and saw that certain cities saw rises while others did not. This graphic shows the top 15 cities and the percentage of the increase they had in the last 21 days.
This graphic shows the total case history day by day of the cities that had large growth compared to Boca Raton which did not.
This is the weekday update of County and Boca Raton dashboards. Use the navigation buttons or links to skip over the weekday stats to our weekly updates: Gating Criteria Stats, Big Picture Stats and Updated Weekly Stats.
Boca Stats (Updated M, W, F)
ABOUT THE FOLLOWING GRAPHICS: Case data is affected by how much testing is done but hospitalizations and deaths reflect actual cases of illness. One of the following graphics is a composite of 3 pie charts designed to give a perspective on the number of cases in the county vs the population, the number of hospitalizations vs the number of cases and the number of deaths vs the hospitalizations. Also, case count totals may be the result of hot spot testing and not accurate in terms of actual number of virus cases in a larger area such as a county or city with a zipcode containing a hotspot. Lastly, zipcodes with hospitals may have counts of patients whose residence is another zipcode but the hospital zipcode was used by mistake in the report.

Weekly Graphics (updated Weekly)
The following graphic shows the historical cumulative counts of new cases in Boca Raton, Palm Beach County and Florida. By themselves, cumulative counts are not meaningful without reflecting the rate of change. Below are the raw cumulative numbers in a 2D-column graphic and the calculated week to week percentage increase. Those percentages are then plotted in their own graph to portray trending.
Open Up America Again Gating Criteria (updated Weekly)
Series of graphics tracking Florida against the Open Up America Again gating criteria. The Federal Guidelines for a state to reopen dictate “Gating Criteria” that must first be met by the state. For a complete explanation of the criteria and guidelines, see our article “Does Florida meet the criteria to open up?”. The graphics below use data collected from the CDC and state FDOH to show how Florida is doing against the gating criteria. A synopsis of criteria is specified in a dark blue rectangle where possible.
