When Vermont reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.
Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Confirmed cases from Total PCR tests (people).
On January 4, 2020, Vermont posted that "the numbers of COVID-19 deaths now includes deaths among probable cases since September 6, 2020." Due to this change we are unable to update the Confirmed deaths metric after January 4, 2020.
On December 23, 2020, Vermont announced on their COVID-19 pagethat there would be no update to their data on December 24, 2020 or December 25, 2020. On January 1, 2020, they noted that there would be no update to their data on January 1, 2020.
On December 23, 2020, Vermont reported more new Confirmed cases than new Total PCR Tests (people), which caused a decrease in the value of Negative PCR tests (people) in our API.
On December 4, 2020, Vermont provided a timeseries for both confirmed and probable cases. We backfilled Total cases, Confirmed cases and Probable cases and updated Total Tests (in People) and Negative to match the new confirmed series.
On December 2, 2020, Vermont added approximately 120 cases to its case count, representing Probable cases since the beginning of September in the state (previously, the state had only reported PCR-confirmed cases). It provided a timeseries, and we backfilled our Total cases field to avoid the impression of an additional 120 case rise on December 2.
On November 26, 2020, Vermont announced on their COVID-19 page that there would be no update to their data on November 26, 2020.
On November 3, 2020, Vermont’s Total PCR tests (people) decreased without explanation. As a result, Vermont’s negative test results, which are calculated by subtracting Confirmed cases from Total PCR tests (people) decreased as well.
On October 29, 2020, Vermont started publishing Total PCR Tests (in specimens) in addition to Total PCR Tests (in people). We backfilled the full time series for this metric from Vermont's Arcgis layer.
As of October 29, 2020, Vermont's total test results are drawn from our
totalTestViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.
On September 23, 2020, Vermont's total tests decreased by about 80 tests with no explanation.
On August 19, 2020, Vermont's total tests decreased by about 200 tests with no explanation.
Between May 15 and May 16, 2020, Vermont's total tests decreased by about 1,000 tests with no explanation.
