Locality of positive Covid-19 person(s)
Locality of positive Covid-19 person(s), say the town at least or even the general area such as NW Valley or Central Phx, would give a person a better idea of places to avoid such as movie theatres, grocery stores, etc.and to be more careful of sanitation.

Good idea at the time, but we're way past that now.
The numbers on the DEPT HEALTH do not add up. On one page you say you conducted 15,031 test yesterday with a 7.8% positive result. that would come to approx 1172 new cases. But on
the main page you are reporting, over 3200 new cases. Something smells fishy. As a friend I know got tested, she tested positive, she lived in a household with 9 other family members, and the tester
told her they would count all her family as positive, even though none were tested. Someone is skewing the numbers, not sure the motivation. very odd.

How many of the positive Covid-19 cases are active and how many have recovered, or died? What is the real danger of exposure if many of the original cases are no longer infectious? In fact, given today's number of cases, 17763, reflects the total number of cases since ADHS started reporting (and seems to include the 857 that have died), how many have recovered and how many are still infectious?
I like the zip code presentation of the data.

You can now search by zipcode.
Yes.....give us more detailed info, it would be advantageous to our MENTAL HEALTH
Report where the virus is! Nothing should be hidden from the people. Report if people who died had compromising illnesses already. Report if they really died from Coronavirus or another issue. Figures should be accurate.
While I am in quarantine I still will need to get groceries and other goods. Knowing where hotspots are within my county would help choose where to go and avoid.
Quarantine anyway. They are finding in countries with better testing (like Iceland) that almost 50% of all cases are asymptomatic. COVID-19 IS IN YOUR AREA. It is just a matter of time until the symptomatic ones show up. The point is to stop that.
Closer identification of where positive cases are is especially important in rural areas like Cochise County... are cases in the closest town/city where a person lives and shops, or are they 2 - 3 hours away where a person rarely goes? Care is needed everywhere, but people should be informed so special care can be taken COVID-19 cases exist or community spread is occurring in a person's immediate area.

Absolutely! It’s a little early to have to self quarantine because you don’t know where to stay away from.
