The community spread chart is subject to fluctuation because the data is based on symptom onset date. As national demand for testing increases and results take longer to come back in DC and across the country, DC Health has identified a need to increase the reporting lag time by four days to reduce volatility in the data. The most recent data reflects an increase in community spread. To ensure this graph accurately reflects the most recent data, the community spread count is being paused as these adjustments are made.

Sustained decrease in cases within the community

The District has the ability to contact trace 100% of new cases within one day of report. That data is represented in the chart below.

Ability to contact trace new positive cases within one day of report

Ability to contact trace close contacts of positive cases within two days

The transmission rate (Rt) data has been adjusted to account for a four-day increase in the reporting lag period.

That data is represented in the chart below.
