Take note, it appears the 23223 has the highest number of cases in Richmond area. Please all, wear a mask, keep 6ft or more distance from people, and wash hands. Chart also shows number of testing encounters. We need more testing in the East End!
Of city zip codes (which also flow into the counties), the highest number of Covid-19 cases fall in 23223, 23234, 23224, and 23225. These areas have large concentrations of poverty and working class. Now there are zip codes outside of the City of Richmond with a high number of Covid-19 cases like 23238.
Looking at this chart is eye opening and I would strongly suggest grocery stores and essential businesses to have a mask wearing requirement for employees and customers. (Editor’s note: The Market at 25th requests that all customers enter the store wearing a mask.
Until then, please care for yourself and community by wearing a mask, keeping a distance, and washing hands.
