Facility notes

The state provides facility-level cumulative data. The state provides facility-level outbreak data. Cumulative facility-level data was first reported by the state on 2020-12-24. Outbreak facility-level data was first reported by the state on 2020-12-24.

Because each state reports facility-level data differently, CTP has produced a number of scripts to make the dataset as standardized and comprehensive as possible. This state uses the following scripts: special NJ scripts, post_processing, standardize_data, collapse_outbreak_rows, close_outbreaks. More information on each of these scripts can be found in our Airtable Facility Script Annotations. (
