There have been 781 new COVID-19 cases reported within Scottsdale city limits in the past seven days, new numbers show.

Numbers provided by the Arizona Department of Health Services on Nov. 23 show 8,791 total cases of COVID-19 mapped to Scottsdale’s nine ZIP codes.

City-wide, compared with numbers last week — 8,010 — there have been 781 new cases since last Monday.

The northeast ZIP code of 85255, which includes Greyhawk and DC Ranch neighborhoods, had the greatest increase of cases with 169.

More than 90% of cases were mapped to the address of the patient’s residence. If the patient’s address was unknown the case was mapped to the address of the provider followed by the address of the reporting facility, according to the ADHS.

Data available through ADHS shows cases per ZIP code are reported as:

  • 85257: 1,521 (up 120);
  • 85251: 2,072 (up 127);
