El Paso infection rates by ZIP code

El Paso public health officials have been providing a daily map of positive test results by ZIP code. But that map doesn’t take into account the widely different population numbers in each ZIP code. The county’s most-populous ZIP code — 79936 — has 43 times more people than the smallest, 79930.

El Paso Matters looked at the number of positive COVID-19 tests per 10,000 people in each ZIP code. These numbers don’t include Fort Bliss because the Army is tracking cases separately and not making public that information, based on a Defense Department directive.
