Here’s the latest update in our somewhat-weekly look at COVID-19 cases in East Cobb, Cobb County and Georgia, as we’ve been getting more detailed breakdowns from local and state public health agencies.
There’s a significant new addition to daily reporting data posted and mapped by Cobb and Douglas Public Health to include where COVID-19 deaths are occurring in the county.
That’s also being done according to ZIP Code, just as we’ve noted in recent weeks for positive cases.
The figures below show the number of positive cases and deaths in East Cobb as of Friday. These are cumulative figures:
- 30067: 248 cases, 7 deaths
- 30062: 242 cases, 12 deaths
- 30066: 200 cases, 9 deaths
- 30068: 138 cases, 16 deaths
- 30075: 21 cases, 0 deaths
Those totals are compiled by the Georgia Department of Public Health, State Electronic Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (SENDSS).
What’s not known is if these mortality figures include deaths reported at senior, nursing and long-term care homes.
Every Friday the Georgia Department of Community Health updates those figures from around the state, and here’s the latest for care facilities in East Cobb:
- A.G. Rhodes Home, 900 Wylie Road (30067): 6 deaths, 26 resident cases;
- Alto Senior Living Marietta, 840 LeCroy Drive (30068): 8 deaths, 22 resident cases;

As we noted last week, while more positive tests have been occurring within younger age groups, the vast majority of deaths have occurred among people ages 70 years and older.
There’s also a new independent tracker of Georgia DPH virus data that’s collected at covid-georgia.com and contains analysis, tracks trends and explains statistics and reporting data in accessible fashion.
