Schools, businesses, nonprofits, sports teams, government offices — virtually every piece of American society is involved in the current worldwide attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).

As people isolate themselves, every single state has set up a webpage or an entire site dedicated to disseminating the latest information about the virus and responses to it.

Government Technology put all of those websites on a map, and included the number of reported coronavirus cases in each state, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will update the map each business day.
