Now that every state is open, we've created several new maps designed to provide immediate insight into progress in containing the virus as business operations resume and expand.
The maps will be updated daily, reflecting the current public health situation in each state. Governing will continue to cover issues related to the interplay between public health and the economy, and link to new content from this page.
The earlier reopening map, summaries of opening guidelines and daily updates are still available. These include links to state plans and orders from both governors and public health agencies, resources that remain of interest.
This map shows week-to-week trends in COVID-19-related deaths, with a color gradient from green (decreasing) to red (increasing). The colors reflect trends, not absolute numbers. Hover over a state for details.
This map shows week-to-week trends in the number of new confirmed COVID-19 cases, with a color gradient from green (decreasing) to red (increasing). The colors reflect trends, not absolute numbers. It should be noted that increases in new cases could be attributed to increased testing. Hover over a state for details.
This map shows week-to-week trends in the percentage of COVID-19 tests that come back positive, with a color gradient from green (lower percentage of positive tests) to red (higher percentage of positive tests). Hover over a state for details.
These graphs show week-to-week national trends in deaths, new cases and percentage of positive tests. Each point on the graph represents the seven-day difference at the time the chart data was updated. Hover over a date for week-over-week numbers. On the "deaths" line graph, the number displayed is the increase (a positive number) or decrease (negative number) in deaths as compared to seven days earlier. Even if deaths have decreased, the line will go up if the decrease is less than it was over the previous seven days. The long-term increase or decrease is reflected in the trend of the graph.
