DENVER (KDVR) — With the holiday season approaching and the announcement of the new COVID-19 omicron variant, where does every US state stand with the coronavirus?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been cases and deaths for the US in the past 30 days.

The blue bar shows daily cases. The red line is the seven-day moving average of the cases, according to the CDC.

What is the percentage of positivity?

According to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the percentage positive is exactly what it sounds like: the percentage of all coronavirus tests done that are actually positive – (positive tests)/(total tests) x 100%. The percentage positive (sometimes called the “percent positive percentage” or “positivity percentage”) helps public health officials answer questions such as:

  • What is the current level of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) transmission in the community?
  • Are we doing enough testing for the number of people who get infected?

The percentage of positive will be high if the number positive tests is high, or if the number total number of tests is low. A higher percentage of positive suggests higher transmission and that there are likely more people with coronavirus in the community who have not yet been tested, according to Johns Hopkins.
