Current data quality grade
To help the public understand how well each state is performing, we have assigned each state a data-quality grade based on our assessment of the completeness of their reporting. Learn more
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 1–July 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.

We calculate daily changes based on the data states report each day. Some states report new cases, tests, and deaths using other methods. Please consult official state data sources for more information. We chart “New tests” using different units across jurisdictions, because not all states and territories report tests in the same units. Learn more about total test units and see what we chart for each jurisdiction in our total tests documentation.
We do not have a complete dataset for every metric in every state. If we we have data for less than 30% of the past 90 days for a given metric, you’ll see a warning instead of a chart for that metric.
All the data for these charts is available for download. You can also review tabular national data on our US historical data page and data for each state and territory on the individual state or territory’s overview page.
