Clayton County COVID-19 cases: City by city as of Monday, April 6

An electronic billboard on I-75 urges people not to touch their faces according to CDC COVID-19 guidance.

JONESBORO — After numerous requests from Clayton News readers, The Clayton County Board of Health has released figures showing how many people have tested positive for COVID-19 by city. Dr. Olugbenga Obasanjo says he will continue to release these city-by-city case counts, most likely through Clayton County’s Communications office.

The city-by-city counts apply only to areas within Clayton County. Some cities on the list share borders with other counties, such as Fayette, Dekalb and Fulton.

All figures come directly from the Georgia Department of Public Health to the Clayton County Board of Health, which released figures that were current as of 4 p.m. on Monday, April 6.

According to the State Summary, 249 Clayton County residents have tested positive, with only 241 listed on the State Electronic Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (SENDSS) Spreadsheet. GDPH says the difference may be because of duplicates in the State Summary.
