COVID-19 Data on the Socrata Platform
As public officials work to contain the spread of COVID-19 — and recover from it — we believe data and the ability to make sense of it is a crucial component of this dialogue.
That’s why we’re helping to provide a comprehensive, real-time data update on the COVID-19 outbreak. The data on this site includes details on the latest confirmed cases by state, timelines, fatalities, and recoveries. The graphs also enable visitors to explore and reuse the source data, as well as to create additional derived views.
Data Sources on this page

Where is this Data sourced
- The Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering provides daily, automated COVID-19 case count information updated at 21:00 PST. This dashboard is filtered on U.S. specific case counts.
- The COVID Tracking Project provides testing information sourced from state departments of health in the U.S.
Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Nursing Home Data
Nursing homes throughout the country have been devastated as a result of COVID-19. Tyler Technologies is making nursing home data available weekly at the county and state level. The data contains nursing home provider information, resident and staff confirmed cases, suspected cases, and deaths from COVID-19, as well as facility ventilator utilization, personal protective equipment supply inventory, nursing home staff shortage information and more.
Nursing home data can be leveraged in conjunction with other data sources to visualize and gain context about nursing homes in your county. This data can answer questions such as how many people are affected with COVID-19 vs. influenza and where to direct personal protective equipment supplies. It can also be used to inform decisions about re-opening state and local governments and economic activity.
The dataset is available for download here and can be accessed through the Socrata platform API endpoint for application development. See documentation here on accessing the dataset via API.

Confirmed Cases by Date Reported
COVID-19 was declared a Class B notifiable disease on Jan. 20, the same day the first U.S. coronavirus case was confirmed Jan. 20 in Snohomish County, Washington. Ten days later, the World Health Organization declared a “public health emergency of international concern.” On March 13, U.S. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency.
Since then, local and state leaders implemented policies to "flatten the curve," including limiting public gatherings, implementing stay-at-home orders, and adopting social distancing ordinances. By mid-May, all 50 states had started easing coronavirus-related restrictions and partially reopening their economies. However, since late-June, some communities began re-enacting restrictions, including closing bars and restaurants, and limiting gatherings.
