Blog Post created by cfrye-esristaff Employee on May 4, 2020

We recently shared a series of county-level maps showing the state of COVID-19 in the U.S. The maps show trends, days since last case, recent outbreaks, mortality, and state-level summaries. The maps are updated daily. https://go.esri.com/COVID19-US-trends-storymaphttps://go.esri.com/COVID19-US-trends-storymap
