Notes:

Alabama combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard.

On July 11, 2020, Alabama began using direct reports from hospitals for cumulative hospitalizations (which we report in our Ever hospitalized metric), rather than state case surveillance. Its number of cumulative hospitalizations increased by over 3,000 as a result.

On July 15, 2020, we changed our data reporting to reflect that Alabama reports test totals in specimens rather than unique people tested, as we had initially believed. All test results were moved into the correct API field and metric.

On September 1, 2020, Alabama began displaying the number of people tested by antibody, over 50,000 individuals, separately from its main total tested field, which it clarified represents antigen and PCR testing. Its main total tested number dropped by over 25,000 the same day. We have reached out to the Alabama Department of Public Health to confirm this drop was due to the removal of the individuals tested by antibody.

As of September 18, 2020, Alabama's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

On October 21, 2020, Alabama did not update their COVID-19 dashboard due to "technical issues".

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

Alaska combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard.

Alaska reports a "Total count" of people who have been hospitalized, but we do not record that count in our Ever hospitalized metric, since it does not include people who are currently in the hospital.

As of July 16, 2020, we are reporting non-resident cases as part of Cases or Positive PCR tests (people) for Alaska.

As of September 18, 2020, Alaska's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

Arizona combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state’s dashboard

On June 23, 2020, we updated our historical data for Cumulative hospitalized to match Arizona's dashboard data for "hospitalized by date admitted." Data for this metric is not typically reported until several days after admittance. Our daily updates will continue to compile Arizona’s overall number as of cumulative hospitalizations, regardless of date admitted.

From July 18August 5, 2020, Arizona’s dashboard stopped displaying confirmed and probable breakdowns for cases and deaths. We will backfill this data if Arizona provides historical numbers.

On September 16, 2020, Arizona added antigen testing into its main totals figure. This appears to have raised its Total Tests (PCR) number more than usual.

On September 18, 2020, Arizona reported a policy change in the way they count people with positive antigen testing results to comply with CSTE case definitions. This appears to have resulted in a large increase in probable cases and also likely the reason where a decrease in confirmed cases was observed

As of September 25, 2020, Arizona’s total test timeseries is stored in our Total PCR Tests (People) field instead of Total PCR Tests (specimens), reflecting a response to our outreach to Arizona’s health department that it counts unique individuals tested. Arizona includes antigen tests in its totals figure, so if an individual received both an antigen and PCR test, they are counted only once. Additionally, as of September 25, 2020, Arizona's total test results are drawn from our Total PCR Tests (People) field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

On October 6, 2020, The Arizona Department of Health Services announced that they were removing cases who had been admitted to a hospital but had not been hospitalized from their total hospitalization counts. This results in a decrease of Arizona's cumulative hospitalizations.

Arizona regularly reviews and removes duplicate records which may occasionally result in minor decreases of cumulative figures.

The Recovered data point we report for Arizona reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

State’s dataset was last updated at Oct 23, 2020 12:00 am ET

Notes:

On Aug 15, 2020, Arkansas data changed due to deduplication and the state's removal of out-of-state cases from its dataset. These changes resulted in reductions in Total cases, Ever hospitalized, and Ever in ICU data.

On September 3, 2020, Arkansas began reporting probable cases according to the most recent CSTE definitions, in addition to confirmed cases. This added 423 new cases to AR’s Total cases number.

On September 16, 2020, Arkansas’s Negative Tests (PCR) dropped by 26,801 tests, causing its Total Tests (PCR) to drop by 26,195 tests due to the reversal of a data dump of negative test results that Arkansas reversed. It also added 140 probable deaths, not all of which dated to September 16.

As of September 18, 2020, Arkansas's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative. The totals do not include repeat positives—counting individuals only for their first positive—but do count repeat negative tests.

During the week of September 20, 2020, Arkansas made some continual adjustments to its antigen people tested numbers, resulting in some fluctuation in its negatives and totals.

Notes:

Prior to April 1, 2020, we used county data sources for more reliably timely reporting of California's COVID-19 data. At the start of April, we began reporting primarily from the state data dashboard(s). This led to a modest drop in cases and deaths, as the state's data lags behind the county sources.

On April 4 and April 22, 2020, California reported large batches of backlogged negative test data.

As of April 22, 2020, California has reported specimens tested instead of people tested. Because some people may be tested more than once, this number is probably higher than the number of people tested.

On July 8, 2020, California data included a backlog from Los Angeles County, which had not reported for several days. Approximately 1,000 of the 11,000 new cases were attributed to this backlog data.

From June 29 to July 5, 2020, California made revisions to daily case numbers. On July 17, we updated the values based on the most recent data from the state dashboard.

From July 23 through July 28, 2020, California reported that its Now hospitalized and Now in ICU were incomplete due to its transition to the HHS reporting system. We carried over hospitalization figures until July 28. We will backfill the complete numbers for this period if the complete data becomes available.

As of September 18, 2020, California's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

On May 15, Colorado started reporting deaths for which COVID-19 is listed on the death certificate, in addition to the figure it already provided, deaths among laboratory-confirmed and probable cases (whether or not COVID was a cause of death). On July 1, 2020, we revised our historical data to reflect the death-certificate metric instead of the deaths-among-cases metric. Because of this change in methodology, there is a drop from 1,091 deaths on May 15 to 878 on May 16 in our data. Colorado also reports subsets of confirmed and probable COVID-19 deaths, but these metrics correspond to the deaths-among-cases metric we no longer report, so we do not compile this data.

On June 14, 2020, Colorado revised previous "daily discharged" numbers. This caused an overall decline in their Recovered data.

On July 27, 2020, Colorado posted a notice that, "Due to a server issue yesterday and today with our electronic laboratory reporting system, the number of tests completed and cases reported today, July 27, 2020, may be artificially low." We report Colorado data a day after posting due to timing, so this note applies to the data published on July 28.

As of August 13, 2020, Colorado's total test results reflect total test encounters. The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

The Recovered data point we report for Colorado reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

On May 27, 2020, Connecticut deduplicated some of its data, resulting in a decrease in Cases and Total PCR tests (specimens).

On May 29, 2020, Connecticut hospitalization data changed due to reporting laboratory-confirmed cases only. These changes resulted in a decrease in the numbers for Ever hospitalized and Recovered (which can be found in our API and CSVs).

On June 18, 2020, Connecticut corrected some errors in its data, resulting in a decrease in Total PCR tests (specimens).

On June 24, 2020, Connecticut corrected some errors in its data, resulting in a decrease in Negative PCR tests (specimens) (which can be found in our API and CSVs).

The Recovered data point we report for Connecticut reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

On April 11, 2020, Delaware revised down negative test results from 10,415 to 9,624.

On July 25, 2020, Delaware revised down total cases, confirmed positives, and total tests.

On August 27, 2020, Delaware revised down total cases and confirmed positives. This is a semi-regular occurrence which will impact Delware's number occasionally.

On September 6, 2020, the Division of Public Health reported a technical issue which caused between 175-200 positive cases to be excluded from Delaware's cumulative confirmed case count. These cases will be added in the coming days. As a result new cases reported may not have been diagnosed in the past 24 hour period.

On September 9, 2020, Delaware reported that data from September 8, 2020 and September 9, 2020 would not be available until September 10, 2020 due to a maintenance issue with their electronic reporting system. We will backfill data for September 8, 2020 and September 9, 2020 to the best of our abilities when data is released

Notes:

On May 25, 2020, the District of Columbia decreased the district's total tests number by 11,000 to reflect only DC residents.

As of September 18, 2020, District of Columbia's total test results are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

According to our outreach, the District of Columbia’s “total overall tested” figure on its dashboard represents test encounters, the number of unique individuals tested per day, with one exception: if an individual receives a positive and a negative test on the same day, they are counted twice rather than once. As of August 29, 2020, we store the “total overall tested” timeseries in our Total PCR Tests (encounters) field, despite this difference in definition.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people, confirmed + probable) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

Florida combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard (first noted July 2, 2020). We include data about Florida non-residents in all metrics where possible. For some metrics, we use machine queries against the Florida Department of Health's raw data, which may not be displayed on its dashboard.

On March 21, 2020, Florida began including tests of people not investigated as PUIs in its Negative PCR tests metric.

Since May 15, 2020, Florida reports total tests in unique people and in unique people tested per lab. For that latter number, if an individual is tested twice by one lab, they only get counted once, but if an individual gets tested twice at different labs, they get counted twice. We store the former value in Total PCR Tests (People), and the latter value, which does not match any of our totals units, in Total Tests (PCR), our specimens field, where we also store testing data with unclear units. This value does not represent the number of specimens.

As of July 10, 2020, Florida reports Now hospitalized data for those patients with a "primary diagnosis of COVID-19."

On August 12, 2020, the Florida Department of Health reported via Twitter that it had received a large backlog of testing data from Niznik Lab Corp in Miami: "The lab reported over 4,000 cases occurring over the last 7 weeks, but which had not been reported to FDOH until today. Therefore, this backlog severely skews today's daily report for Miami-Dade and is not reflective of current trends."

On August 14, 2020, Florida began distinguishing between people with positive antigen tests and people with positive PCR tests in the Total Cases number given in their daily state report. As of September 30, 2020, we have removed these antigen positives from the values for Cases or Positive PCR tests (people) (positiveCasesViral in our API), so the values for this metric in our time series will be lower. Cases (confirmed plus probable) (positive in our API) will be unaffected.

On September 1, 2020, the Florida Department of Health announced that Quest Diagnostics had reported nearly 75,000 backlogged tests dating as far back as April.

On October 10, 2020, Florida did not report COVID-19 data. The state initially reported that this was because Helix Laboratory, a private lab, submitted 400,000 previously submitted results, which required extra deduplication time. On October 12, 2020, the Florida Department of Health announced that the error was not the fault of the private lab, but was due to "an unforeseen technical issue" that was "not the fault of Helix or the Department of Health." The state's data for October 11, 2020 appears to include data from both October 10 and 11.

As of October 13, 2020, Florida's Antigen positive timeseries is stored in our Probable cases field, reflecting a response to our outreach to Florida's health department that it switches Antigen positive cases to PCR positive cases in their daily state report upon confirmatory PCR testing.

On October 21, 2020, only some of Florida's data updated by our publication time. Data points such as Total PCR Tests (People) did not update.

Per reporting, the number of pending tests (available in our API and CSVs) may include only results from public labs, and may therefore be an undercount.

Notes:

As of May 27, 2020, Georgia reports antibody tests separately from PCR tests. This change reduced the number for total tests by approximately 74,000.

As of August 28, 2020, we started reporting patients Now hospitalized from the Georgia Geospatial Information Office. The new count includes both patients with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis and patients under investigation, as is our standard practice where possible.

As of September 18, 2020, Georgia's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

On October 21, 2020, Georgia did not update their "COVID-19 Daily Status Report" by the time of our daily update due to technical issues. In order to provide the most up to date data possible, we updated only Current Hospitalizations, which are sourced from a different Georgia government website.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Guam's counts include 11 people tested at the San Diego naval base.

On September 3, 2020, Guam reported that it had shifted to using the more restrictive August 5 definition of probable cases released by the CSTE. From March 12, 2020 to September 2, 2020 Guam reported eight probable cases under the previous probable case definition. Due to the change, Guam has no cases that classify as probable cases as of September 3, 2020, and 8 cases have been removed from Guams's total case count.

Notes:

As of August 5, 2020, we are collecting Now hospitalized, Now in ICU, and Now on ventilator data from the Lt. Governor of Hawaii's Instagram account, as we have determined that these are official statistics not available elsewhere. We have backfilled our time series for all available data from this source.

On September 3, 2020, Hawaii included cases which had been previously diagnosed in their daily update due to an electronic laboratory reporting error." As a result, new cases reported may not have been diagnosed in the previous 24 hours.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people, confirmed + probable) from Total PCR tests (people) in the absence of better data.

On September 27, 2020, HI reported a near-doubling in recoveries. This change reflects new information about recoveries in the past, and not unusual recovery activity on that date.

As of October 7th, 2020, Hawaii has stopped reporting the number of unique people tested, which is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral. We will carry forward the last value as a lower bound.

As of October 9, 2020, Hawaii’s total test results are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Notes:

As of April 9, 2020, Idaho reports probable and confirmed cases separately.

On June 5, 2020, Idaho reported a large batch of previously unreported tests. The state's Total tests number rose by approximately 2,500 more tests on June 5 than the seven-day average for new tests at that time.

On July 3, 2020, Idaho revised down their Recovered data by about 1,500, noting that "an error in auto-calculation was discovered."

On July 8, 2020, Idaho revised its historical numers for Hospitalized now. We updated our hospitalization figures for Idaho from March 23 to July 13, 2020 to match on July 17, 2020.

From July 13 through July 21, 2020, Idaho was unable to report Hospitalized now data due to HHS regulation changes. Idaho retroactively made figures available for these days on July 21, 2020, and we revised our figures to match.

On July 22, 2020, Idaho reported 126 total deaths but also reported 103 lab-confirmed deaths and 33 probable deaths, for a calculated total of 136 deaths. We treated the 33 probable deaths data point as an error and reported 126 total deaths for this date, including 103 confirmed and 23 probable deaths. See Idaho state page screenshots for July 22.

On August 4, 2020, after another period of missing data for Hospitalized now, Idaho reported current hospitalizations of 106, down from the previous report of 223 on July 31. It reported a similar drop in ICU patients from 51 on July 31 to 22 on August 4.

As of September 18, 2020, Idaho's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

As of May 19, 2020, Iowa reports PCR and antibody tests separately.

On September 26, 2020, Iowa announced that due to a data update, roughly 27,000 antigen tests from long-term care facilities will be added to their COVID-19 antigen test data. This update will occur from September 26, 2020 to September 27, 2020, and will result in an increased number of antigen test tests reported in our data for Iowa. (Antigen data is available in our CSVs and API.)

On October 16, 2020, Iowa removed 12,831 tests from the state’s PCR test total. On the same day, 19,308 tests were added to the state’s antigen test total. We were unable to locate an official explanation, but surmise that these changes were the result of data cleaning and reorganization work.

Notes:

Kansas combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard.

Kansas reports much of its data on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays only, so there are often large changes in the values, which can represent 2-3 days of data.

As of May 7, 2020, confirmed and probable cases are included in the case totals.

From July 1July 3, 2020, we reported incorrect numbers for Kansas Cases or Positive PCR tests (people). We have corrected the error.

On July 15, 2020, Kansas began reporting additional data from hospitals, and at that time, data for the Now hospitalized metric was only available through July 10.

On October 21, 2020, the inIcuCurrently value for KS dropped from 81 to 1 on the state's dashboard. We recorded it, but expect it to be revised at another point.

The Recovered data point we report for Kansas reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized. Kansas notes that this metric only includes cases with available discharge information reported to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Between April 20 and April 24, 2020, Louisiana did not report testing data from commercial labs due to a state review of data.

On June 19, 2020, Louisiana's data changed due to deduplication and the state's removal of out-of-state cases.

On August 30 Louisiana's reported data included 532 older cases that had not previously been reported; these cases had specimen collection dates ranging back to July 1.

On August 26, 2020, Louisiana started reporting Probable cases, this caused a notable increase in Total cases.

Louisiana reports probable deaths on a weekly basis.

Between March 12 and March 28, 2020, Maryland did not report data for negative tests.

On July 31, 2020, we began capturing Maryland's data for Positive PCR tests (specimens). On August 31 2020 , we updated Maryland's Total PCR tests (specimens) and Positive PCR tests (specimens) prior to 8/16 to match state-provided "Testing Volume" data.

As of October 16, 2020, Maryland’s total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative. This will result in TotalTestResults only going back to 3/24 instead of 3/5.

Notes:

On June 1, 2020, Massachusetts began to report probable cases and probable deaths, causing *Total cases and Total deaths to appear to increase sharply in our data.

On June 30, 2020, Massachusetts decreased the number of cumulative hospitalizations and confirmed and probable deaths "due to ongoing data cleaning which identifies and removes duplicate reports."

On July 31, 2020, Massachusetts noted that "Delays in the reporting of test results to DPH from multiple laboratories, including large national commercial laboratories, are reflected in today’s case counts. However, these positive test results have been assigned retrospectively to the appropriate date of test." We will backfill case data for Massachusetts in the near future.

On August 12, 2020, Massachusetts began reporting probable cases weekly instead of daily. This can lead to apparent spikes in the data when the weekly numbers are incorporated, as happened on August 19. Beginning August 20, 2020, we will use the daily total case count from the race and ethnicity section of the dashboard, which includes both confirmed and probable cases, and will backfill the previous week's case counts.

On August 31, 2020 we updated Massachusetts' Total PCR Tests (specimens) before August 12, 2020 based on the state's "Tests by Date" dataset, extending the column back to January 22, 2020.

On September 2, 2020, MA reported that it had shifted to using the more restrictive August 6 definition of probable cases released by the CSTE. This change caused a significant decrease in several data points where probable cases or probable deaths were included, particularly the overall case count, which dropped by more than 7,000. Historical data was also affected.

As of September 11, 2020, Massachusetts’ total test results reflect total specimens. The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

Notes:

On June 11, 2020, we updated our historical data from a spreadsheet provided by Michigan's Department of Health and Human Services in order to reflect the lab-reported dates of probable and confirmed cases and probable and confirmed deaths by date of death.

As of July 7, 2020, Michigan updates its death figures three times a week after conducting reviews of death certificates. As a result, "new" deaths may not always reflect deaths in the past 24 hours.

On October 15, 2020, Michigan announced that due to a laboratory result processing slowdown, several cases that would normally have been included in the October 14, 2020 update were reported on October 15, 2020. The issue has since been resolved. Aa a result, cases reported on October 15, 2020 may not have been reported within the last 24 hour period.

Michigan updates its Recovered metric weekly and does not update any data on Sundays. Our source for Now hospitalized and Now in ICU data in Michigan generally updates on Mondays and Fridays only. Michigan combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard. Since March 10, 2020, Michigan has reported each day's Positive and Negative tests (people) by county but has never totaled these metrics for the state. We add new Positive and Negative tests (people) values daily to a running sum and report the total.

On September 17, 2020, we switched Minnesota's specimens timeseries to Total Test Encounters (PCR) based on correspondence with the state, which revealed that their "total approximate number of completed tests" reflects individuals tested per day.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

As of September 18, 2020, Minnesota total test results are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

From September 27 to October 4, 2020, Minnesota did not report the current number of hospitalizations or patients in the ICU. We froze these values through October 2, 2020. On October 3, 2020, we removed the values in accordance with our policy of not carrying over current values for longer than 7 days. The values were restored on October 4, 2020.

As of May 23, 2020, Mississippi is separating out PCR and antibody tests. We now report both separately.

On May 26, 2020, news reports indicated that 95 antibody tests had returned positive in Mississippi, but we have not found more recent data since then for this metric.

Between June 17 and June 22, 2020, Mississippi experienced technical difficulties with their reporting system. We filled in five days of case and death data on June 22, 2020.

On September 11, 2020, we discovered a new source for Mississippi current hospitalizations and current ICU admissions on the Mississippi State Department of Health website.

On September 15, 2020, Mississippi resumed reporting current hospitalizations, ICU, and ventilations on the source we have historically used for this metric. We are working to backfill these data points in our historical data.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

As of May 22, 2020, Missouri reports PCR tests separately from antibody tests.

On September 5, 2020, the Missouri DHSS added an additional 72 deaths to their total count, "most of which occurred June-August".

As of October 7, 2020, Missouri's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative. The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

On October 8, 2020, Missouri added current hospitalizations to their COVID-19 dashboard, and we began to capture this metric. Historical data is also available and we are working on backfilling our data for days where this metric was unavailable.

On October 11, 2020, Missouri announced that a database error had resulted in an “incorrect inflation” of cases in its October 10, 2020 report. When The COVID Tracking Project is able to obtain correct official data for October 10 from Missouri, we will update our dataset to reflect the correction.

On October 14, 2020, Missouri testing numbers by people decreased. This resulted in a decrease in all total testing numbers (people) and negative cases. Testing numbers by specimen are unaffected.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

Notes:

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services states that due to testing preformed on environmental samples, the number of Total PCR Tests (test encounters) reported is higher than the number of test encounters including only tests preformed on people.

On October 15, 2020, Nevada stopped reporting the number of unique people who tested negative on their dashboard without explanation. We carried forward the last reported number of people tested negative between October 15 and October 21 (our policy when a metric goes missing without notice is to “freeze” the number for up to seven days to allow states to recover from temporary reporting problems). Since our API uses the sum of positive+negative tests to calculate the total number of tests in Nevada, this caused the number of total tests on those dates to increase only by the number of positives. On October 21, 2020, we updated the number of Nevada’s negative tests for October 15 through October 20 based on a calculation of (Total people tested – Cases)

On October 21, 2020, Nevada's cumulative *Recovered number for residents decreased from 1151 to 1139 with no explanation.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

Notes:

As of May 25, 2020, New Hampshire reports PCR tests separately from antibody tests.

On September 2, 2020, New Hampshire did not update their dashboards or summary report by the time of our update.

On September 9, 2020, New Hampshire did not update their dashboards or summary report by the time of our update.

As of September 18, 2020, New Hampshire's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative. The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

Notes:

On May 16, 2020, a backfill effort by New Jersey caused the state's data for Recovered to rise by approximately 7,000 people.

On July 16, 2020, New Jersey's Recovered figure decreased.

On July 19, 2020, New Jersey's Total cases decreased, perhaps due to reclassification of probable cases.

On August 4, 2020, New Jersey's Now hospitalized* number decreased by 268 people.

On August 7, 2020, we back-filled New Jersey's Probable deaths with data provided by the state. This removed apparent spikes in deaths due to the state's irregulat reporting.

On September 1, New Jersey did not update their total PCR test figure by the time of our update, however total cases increased from 191160 to 192290.

The Recovered data point we report for New Jersey reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens).

Notes:

Due to an exclusion of probable COVID-19 deaths in the state's data, New York City and New York State report substantially diverging death counts. As of June 1, 2020, New York City reported 5740 more deaths than New York State. We use the data from the state, so our dataset excludes these probable COVID-19 deaths.

New York State has not reported new Ever hospitalized data since June 2, 2020.

The Recovered data point we report for New York reflects the number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

On July 22, 2020, North Carolina started reporting the number of patients currently in the ICU.

On August 12, 2020, North Carolina announced a major correction in its Total PCR tests (specimens), resulting in a decrease of more than 220,000 reported tests.

On September 25, 2020, North Carolina started reporting probable cases which caused the Total Cases to increase by 4,563.

On September 26, 2020, North Carolina started reporting deaths among individuals who had tested positive via antigen. We record this figure in our Deaths (probable) field.

The metric reported in our API as totalTestsAntigen only includes tests reported after September, 22, 2020. If previous values become available from North Carolina we will backfill the complete time series.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

On May 3, 2020, North Dakota began reporting two additional death metrics: deaths of people with lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 whose death records are still pending and deaths of people with lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 whose death certificates do not list COVID-19 as a cause of death. As of July 1, 2020, we have edited our historical figures to exclude these numbers from our death counts, resulting in an apparent drop from 24 deaths on May 2 to 16 on May 3.

On August 19, 2020, North Dakota launched a new dashboard with a number of new data points, including race and ethnicity data and ICU data.

On September 9, 2020, North Dakota began reporting “Susceptible Encounters” on its dashboard, which are defined as test encounters excluding those who have tested positive after the first time. We have begun recording the value in our Total PCR tests (test encounters) field.

As of September 11, 2020, North Dakota’s total test results reflect total test encounters. The number of unique people tested is available in our API as totalTestsPeopleViral.

On October 8, 2020, North Dakota released two figures describing those who are currently hospitalized. According to the state dashboard annotation, the "Hospitalized with COVID" figure describes those whose main reason for hospitalization is COVID-19, and it also includes all those who are "Hospitalized due to COVID". We are using the "Hospitalized with COVID" figure for our Currently hospitalized and Currently in ICU metrics, however there are not matching Cumulative metrics so we are using the "Due to COVID" Cumulative hospitalized and ICU figures.

On July 23, 2020, we switched our Total tests units to the people-tested metric reported by the Northern Mariana Islands, which led to a drop in total tests. We will backfill total tests data for the territory as soon as we are able to do so.

The Northern Mariana Islands have not posted a new Recovered number since July 15, 2020.

On April 23, 2020, Pennsylvania revised down its total Deaths (confirmed and probable) from 1,622 to 1,421 to exclude some probable deaths that needed further confirmation to be linked to COVID-19.

On September 3, 2020, Pennsylvania clarified that the test numbers they have been reporting previously are in units of unique people and began publishing new test data in units of specimens. On September 4, 2020, we therefore moved the appropriate historical data to the Total PCR tests (people) field and began capturing Total PCR tests (specimens).

Notes:

On April 22, 2020, Puerto Rico's data changed due to deduplication. This resulted in a decrease in Total cases.

On May 6, 2020, Puerto Rico stopped reporting Negative PCR tests.

On July 7, 2020, we updated Negative PCR tests based on press releases from May and June.

Reported Deaths include both confirmed and probable COVID-19 deaths.

Puerto Rico reports both confirmed cases, which are identified by positive PCR tests, and probable cases, which the territory reports are identified by positive antibody tests. It is not clear whether Puerto Rico requires additional epidemiological, clinical, or vital records evidence to classify a person with a positive antibody test as a probable case. The combined case number in our dataset includes Puerto Rico's confirmed and probable cases as the territory reports them.

Puerto Rico does not report test data on its data dashboard. Data for Total PCR Tests (in specimens) and Positive PCR Tests (in specimens) is taken from infrequent press reports.

As of August 17, 2020, our Total tests metrics include Rhode Island's Total tests (in test encounters).

On September 25, 2020, Rhode Island removed 240 duplicate cases from its case count, resulting in a drop from 24,311 cases to 24,181.

The Recovered data point we report for Rhode Island reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Notes:

As of June 11, 2020, South Carolina reports PCR tests separately from antibody tests. Total test numbers were reduced by around 22,000 as a result of this change.

On July 18, 2020, South Carolina announced it was transitioning to new reporting systems and that "there may be incomplete data with significant gaps." Though reporting resumed July 28, 2020, this resulted in data being carried over at times. We will backfill with the updated numbers when they are available.

On August 14, 2020, South Carolina reported an unusually large number of tests without explanation.

On August 23, 2020, South Carolina corrected a double-counting of testing numbers from the months May–August. This resulted in a significant drop of all aspects of testing-related counts, with Total PCR tests (specimens) dropping by approximately 22,000 and total antibody tests dropping by 1,500.

On September 10, 2020, South Carolina announced that it added a large number of saliva tests from the University of South Carolina to its data, causing an unusually large number of cases in the data for September 11.

Between August 25 and September 21, 2020, South Carolina did not provide updated estimates of the number of Recovered cases.

On September 15, 2020, South Carolina started reporting antigen testing data, reporting 7,763 positive tests and 23,477 total tests. Its “viral (i.e. molecular/PCR) tests” positives and totals dropped by about the same amount, likely due to the removal of this data.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

As of September 18, 2020, South Dakota's total test results are drawn from our totalTestsPeopleViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

On October, 7, 2020 South Dakota started reporting Probable cases. This added 473 new cases to South Dakota's Total cases number.

Notes:

As of May 23, 2020, Texas reports PCR tests separately from antibody tests.

On June 16, 2020, Texas notes that "The reported cases for June 16 include 2,622 new cases and 1,476 cases that were previously diagnosed among Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmates but that had not been reported by local health departments (887 from Anderson County and 589 from Brazoria County)."

On July 22, 2020, we began reporting Currently in ICU for Texas. We are currently reviewing historical data to maintain an accurate time-series.

On July 25, 2020, Texas reported that 2092 probable cases had been removed from the statewide case totals by the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District. That removal meant that the number of total cases for Texas appeared smaller than it was. The actual number of new cases in Texas that day was 8,112, not 6,020.

On July 27, 2020, Texas added 675 additional deaths through death certificate reviews. However only 44 deaths were truly "new" deaths on July 27. This will create a one-day artificial apparent daily increase in deaths.

Starting July 23, 2020, Texas has reported that its current hospitalization and ICU numbers are incomplete due to its transition to the HHS reporting system. We carried over hospitalization figures until July 28. We will backfill the complete numbers for July 23July 28 if the complete data becomes available.

On July 30, 2020, Texas noted that "Cumulative fatalities have been corrected for July 27–29. As DSHS shifted to using death certificate data to count fatalities this week, an automation error caused approximately 225 fatalities to be included that did not have COVID-19 listed as a direct cause of death."

On August 2, 2020, Texas noted that "New data will not be posted on this dashboard on Sunday, August 2 due to a scheduled upgrade to the system that processes electronic lab reports. Data for Sunday will be posted with Monday’s data update."

As of August 16, 2020, several commercial laboratories submitted previously backlogged test results to the Texas Department of State Health Services. As a result, new confirmed cases may not have occurred in the past 24 hours. The Texas Department of State Health Services is working to resolve these issues.

On September 14, 2020, Texas "revised its method for reporting Total Tests," resulting in an approximately 300,000 unit decrease in Total PCR tests (specimens) and approximately 17,000 unit decrease in Total antibody tests (specimens). We are currently investigating how this change affects our understanding of Texas' testing units.

The Texas Department of State Health Services regularly includes older cases identified by labs in their cumulative confirmed case counts. As a result, new cases reported may not necessarily have occurred in the past 24 hour period. When these increases are significant, we will specifically mention them in our daily update on twitter.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

Utah combines PCR and antigen tests in the top-line total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard. We get our cumulative PCR and antigen testing numbers from summing the daily testing figures on a graph with a timeseries that Utah continuously revises. We do our best to capture any backfilling manually, but the graph does not have an option to download the data automatically, which would allow us to better capture these revisions.

As of June 11, 2020, Utah reports a combined case count for total intubated patients and patients on a ventilator. We report this figure as Ever on ventilator.

As of July 16, 2020, Utah is reporting both specimens and people tested. We report positives and negatives based on the number of people tested.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

As of May 15, 2020, Virginia is reporting PCR tests and antibody tests separately.

On Aug 7, 2020, due to the release of a backlog, Virginia reoprted an abnormally large case increase of around 2000.

On August 27, the VA dashboard did not update by our publish time. We are carrying over the values from August 26

On August 31, 2020 we began publishing Positive PCR tests (specimens) for Virginia. This data has been collected daily since July 21, 2020. Previous data going back to February 27, 2020 was taken from state historical data as of July 21. Historical data for Total PCR Tests (encounters) before July 21, 2020 was updated based on the same dataset, extending the column back to February 27, 2020 as well.

As of September 18, 2020, Virginia's total test results are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Ever hospitalized is calculated from the "currently hospitalized" and "discharged" data points on the Virginia Hospital COVID-19 dashboard.

The Recovered data point we report for Virginia reflects the number of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (test encounters) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

Between March 31 and April 15, 2020, Washington state did not report Negative PCR tests (people).

On April 18, 2020, Washington state removed 190 confirmed cases that were discovered to be out-of-state residents tested in Washington laboratories.

On June 18, 2020, Washington revised its Total PCR tests (people) downward. On the same date, Washington decreased its count of COVID-19 deaths by 7, because it determined that even though those 7 people had tested positive for COVID-19, COVID-19 was not a contributing cause in their deaths.

On June 22, 2020, we updated previous values for cases and total tests in our time-series using data from Washington state's dashboard. This update caused an artificial decrease in cases and tests between June 21 and June 22.

On July 14, 2020, Washington state revised its count of COVID-19 deaths downward by 39, because it determined that even though those 39 people had tested positive for COVID-19, COVID-19 was not a contributing cause in their deaths.

On August 2, 2020, Washington state Department of Health reported that "DOH is continuing to experience issues with its reporting system today. We are able to report cases, deaths and hospitalizations but have not reported new negative test results since 8/1."

On August 26, 2020, Washington switched its total tests units to testing encounters, excluding future encounters from individuals who test positive. It also provided a full timeseries of the figure. This testing encounters figure is slightly different from how we define testing encounters in two ways: first, our definition of testing encounters includes encounters after a positive test, and second, it should be calculated not by summing resulted tests but by counting all daily tests in a separate reporting stream. Despite these differences, the historical and current values of Washington’s figure are still stored in our Total PCR tests (test encounters) field.

As of September 18, 2020, Washington's total test results are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

Washington State reports confirmed cases, laboratory tests, and deaths as of the previous day.

We report the most recent hospitalization data available for Washington. In some cases, this data may be reviewed and revised by the Washington State Department of Health. As a result, Washington considers hospitalization data complete after a 18-day lag period. In our data this lag is 20 days.

State’s dataset was last updated at Oct 22, 2020 11:59 pm ET

Notes:

On April 16, 2020, West Virginia began reporting current hospitalization, ICU, and ventilator metrics from 49 of 55 counties. Before April 16, 2020, those counts were less complete, as they were based on completed investigations rather than on hospital data.

On May 23, 2020, West Virginia began reporting PCR and antibody tests separately. Total test values before this date might include both PCR and antibody tests.

On July 4, 2020, West Virginia began making continual changes to its previous data for antibody testing, so its historical time series might not match COVID Tracking Project data.

West Virginia reports new antibody tests daily. We sum these numbers in a running total to report a value for the total number of antibody tests West Virginia has conducted. Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.

Notes:

On March 30, 2020, Wisconsin revised its cumulative Negative PCR tests (people) data downward without explanation.

In early June of 2020, Wisconsin started reporting probable cases of COVID-19 separately from confirmed cases of COVID-19. On June 25, 2020, The COVID Tracking Project added more than two weeks' worth of probable cases to our Cases (confirmed plus probable) for WI, initially causing a large single day increase in cases. We subsequently updated our historical Cases data using data provided to us by the state, which eliminated this one-day increase.

In early June of 2020, Wisconsin started reporting probable deaths from COVID-19 separately from confirmed deaths from COVID-19. We did not discover this data until June 29, 2020, and so our time series only has data for this metric beginning on that date.

During the week of April 6, 2020, Wyoming began reporting confirmed and probable cases separately.

During the week of April 7, 2020, Wyoming began to report both confirmed and probable cases in its Recovered metrics.

On April 22, 2020, Wyoming revised its Total PCR tests (specimens) downward, resulting in a corresponding decrease in the calculated value of Negative PCR tests (specimens).

On April 28, 2020, we began to report probable cases together with confirmed cases.

On June 19, 2020, Wyoming began reporting Total PCR tests (people) as well as Total PCR tests (specimens).

On August 26, 2020, Wyoming did not report Total PCR tests (people). We have carried over the previous day's value.

On October 14, 2020, Wyoming's Total PCR Tests (specimens) and Total PCR Tests (people) values both decreased by over 1000 with no explanation. We believe the state might have deduplicated its data.

On October 22, 2020, Wyoming reported a ~47% hospitalization rate. We carried over the previous value because this would have resulted in ~3700 additional hospitalized cases in Cumulative hospitalized/Ever hospitalized.

Wyoming reports both Positive tests PCR (specimens) and Negative tests PCR (specimens) as percentages of Total tests PCR. We convert these percentages to integers. Wyoming reports the number of people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in each hospital: we sum these values for the state total. Wyoming reports the number of people ever hospitalized with COVID-19 as a percentage: we convert this percentage to an integer. Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).
