We’ve been tracking El Paso County COVID-19 infection rates by ZIP code for several weeks. We’re adding Doña Ana County ZIP codes for a better regional picture.

El Paso and New Mexico governments have released case counts by ZIP code, but those can be misleading because they don’t account for population differences across ZIP code. El Paso Matters calculates infection rates per 10,000 people, using ZIP code population estimates.
