Here’s what’s happening now:

Top ZIP codes for COVID-19 lab-confirmed cases shift from majority congregate living settings

You may know: Since lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases data began being released by ZIP code from the state, Raleigh Convergence started tracking week-over-week growth.

In Wake County, ZIP codes with congregate living setting outbreaks were consistently at the top of the list for the first two weeks.

What's new: Now, only one of the top 3 ZIP codes for cases has reported congregate living setting outbreaks, according to the Tuesday congregate living report.

The 2nd- and 3rd-most lab-confirmed case count ZIP codes both have more than 100 reported cases. 

There are also now 19 ZIP codes with 31+ lab-confirmed cases, compared to last week's 13.

A few factors for context:
  • No new congregate living outbreaks have been reported in Wake County since May 12.
  • More testing is readily available, with about 30 testing sites in Wake County alone listed on the state site.
  • This isn't the extent of community spread, just the results of positive tests.
