The COVID Tracking Project is a volunteer effort run by passionate citizens from a range of backgrounds. We’d love to have you involved, too.

We’ll send you our latest news, plus alerts on when and how to contact government officials and public health offices where you live. With your help, we can gather the best data possible from every state and territory.

To receive updates specific to your location, please enter a zip code.


We need volunteers with ongoing time in their schedules to support crucial efforts in a range of fields: running daily data entry shifts, monitoring press conferences, doing outreach to government bodies, improving our technical infrastructure, and more.

Please note that we do not do contact tracing.

If you are interested in helping us collect data, please be aware that training and onboarding new data entry volunteers is a significant time investment for our small team, and we therefore prefer volunteers who will commit to at least 10 hours per week and who are available weekday afternoons and evenings.

Our volunteers come from all kinds of backgrounds, and are some of the kindest people we know. If you’re interested, fill out a volunteer application.
