Cur­rent pos­i­tive case num­bers are avail­able online at the Coun­ty Case Data Dash­board. As indi­cat­ed on that page, these num­bers are only updat­ed after case con­fir­ma­tion is com­plete, usu­al­ly dai­ly. It is pos­si­ble that oth­er infor­ma­tion sources in the com­mu­ni­ty may be quick­er to report on new cas­es, but ensur­ing pri­va­cy and accu­ra­cy is crit­i­cal for this offi­cial infor­ma­tion source.
