Last Maine CDC update: Aug. 5

ZIP code COVID-19 case data: Knox, Waldo counties (and some of Lincoln County)

Thu, 08/06/2020 - 9:45am

    AUGUSTA — The Maine CDC has released COVID-19 confirmed and probable case data by ZIP code. 

    With the data release, the Maine CDC continues to urge all individuals in Maine — resident or not — to abide by all established COVID-19 guidelines whether cases are within their particular ZIP code. 

    The Maine CDC noted there are three exceptions to the data release to ensure compliance with its privacy policy: case counts are suppressed in ZIP codes with fewer than 50 people; exact case counts are suppressed in all ZIP codes with five or fewer cases; in counties where total case counts are low enough that ZIP code data could indirectly reveal the identity of a case all ZIP codes in the county are suppressed.

    As per Maine CDC guidance, the below table is sorted by ZIP code since some ZIP codes could span multiple towns. As such, Maine CDC noted the data should not be directly broken down by town and referred to instead by ZIP code. 

    As of Aug. 6, Knox County has recorded 27 cases; Waldo County has recorded 62 and Lincoln County has recorded 34.

    The below data was last updated Aug. 5 by the Maine CDC using data as of Aug. 3. 

    Since the last update, 04572 increased from 1-5 cases to 6 cases.
