Maps help us identify areas of San Francisco that have been most affected by COVID-19. We use this information to direct resources to those most affected.

Maps reflect institutional racism and structural inequality
COVID-19 has affected specific communities of color more than other groups. Learn more on our population characteristics page.
Neighborhood trends are closely linked to racism and inequality. This is, in part, because of discriminatory housing policies like redlining and urban renewal.
Structural racism and discrimination impact many aspects of a person’s life, including:
Health care access
These can affect a person’s health. They can also increase a person’s risk of getting COVID-19. Find out more about health equity and COVID-19 risk factors. Other factors may also impact neighborhood trends, like the density of congregate housing. In congregate housing, bathrooms or kitchens are shared among more than one household.
Differences in the neighborhood case rates does not mean that any area of the city is more or less safe.
