COVID-19 Outbreak Locations

These data represent outbreaks of cases of COVID-19 in all setting types, except Long-Term Care/Skilled Care Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities, and Developmentally Disabled Facilities. Long Term Care Facility Outbreaks can be found Here.

Local health departments investigate outbreaks by identifying clusters from individual case investigations. This information is based on reported locations visited during their 14-day exposure period.

Table 1 represents newer outbreaks where the first identified case in the outbreak had an onset date within the past 30 days. Table 2 represents all outbreaks since the Phase 4 reopening where cases have an onset date on or after July 1, 2020.

Many factors may result in underreporting of outbreaks. Cases may go undetected because those infected are not tested and some are asymptomatic. Additionally, cases may not respond to phone calls from contact tracers or may not disclose all the locations visited.
