This map represents the number of laboratory confirmed cases of COVID-19 by self-reported, residential address within a Kalamazoo County zip code. Zip codes are outlined by arbitrary borders. Size and populations are not equal between them. Mapping by zip code is limited by the type of disease being mapped and over what time period. It is important to note that people are often exposed to COVID-19 outside of their home zip code, for example at work, school or a business in another zip code.
We will keep you up to date on these numbers each weekday.
