Daily New Cases per 100,000

(averaged over prior two weeks)

The bar chart values come directly from the MA DPH's weekly report, specifically the "Average Daily Incidence Rate per 100,000 (Last 14 days)" column. While far from perfect, this is one way to better compare data across towns since it factors in the population size. Think of it like a percentage, but instead of per 100, it's per 100,000.

Similarly, the dashed line comes from the "Percent Positivity (Last 14 days)" column and represents the level of tests coming back positive.

All bar colors are calculated using the most recent formula described by the MA Dept of Health, which looks at population size, case counts, case rates, and positivity rates.

Weekly New Cases

These chart values are derived from Orleans's changes in "Total Case Count" from the prior week. It's not an exact science, due to reporting delays and occasional corrections.

Data Sources

These charts are based on publicly available data from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, specifically the Weekly Public Health Report here.
