This COVID tracker is updated 7 days a week at bocafirst.org/covid-19-tracker.
This is our COVID-19 tracker with “at a glance” infographic and other stats for Boca Raton based on data collected from the Florida Department of Health. Our data and analysis is presented without commentary or agenda. Using data culled from various official Florida Department of Health websites, we’ve created graphics to visualize what’s going on locally. See each graphic for the specific sources used. Data in these reports is provisional and subject to change. We update our tracker in the morning with data from the previous evening.

ABOUT THE CASE DATA IN OUR GRAPHICS:
Case data is affected by how much testing is done. The percent positive, hospitalization and death rates reflect actual cases of illness in a population. 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. Zipcodes with hospitals may have counts of patients whose residence is another zipcode but the hospital zipcode was used by mistake in the report.
