  • Data on this page reflects cases, hospitalizations, or deaths from COVID-19 that are associated with a particular setting.
  • All data are preliminary and may change as more information is received.
    The shaded bar at the end of graphs indicates a lag period where data may be incomplete.

Facility-level reporting means these facilities are still monitoring for COVID-19 cases, but not necessarily reporting on every individual case, and may include self-reported test results from staff, students, etc. depending on the facility.
