Mapping COVID Data

Yale University is collecting and creating maps to visualize the state, spread, and impact of the coronavirus pandemic. These maps provide the context that is unavailable when looking at raw data. While some maps are replicated from other sites as a source a high quality information, most of the maps on this site are unique, providing alternative ways to highlight possible areas of interest that may otherwise go unnoticed.

The dashboard shows COVID-19 vaccination progress in the state of Connecticut.
These maps and information dashboards provide various representations of the confirmed cases of COVID-19 regionally and throughout the globe.

Nearly all Connecticut schools closed after the onset of COVID-19 in the spring of 2020. But starting this past fall, state policy makers and school officials have been increasingly focused on getting as many students physically back into the classroom as possible, citing benefits to student education, mental health, and socialization.

Keeping students in schools safely depends upon the levels of transmission found within individual schools and in the broader community. In Connecticut, individual school districts have made autonomous decisions about their learning models, often changing weekly to an in-person, hybrid or remote model in response to local conditions. State officials have characterized in-school outbreaks as rare, despite the numbers and patterns of reported cases.

The independence of Connecticut public school districts has also produced inequitable access to the facilities and services needed to safely return to school during a pandemic.

Outbreaks of any disease, including COVID-19, within correctional systems have substantial public health repercussions, affecting not only those incarcerated but also those who work in facilities and, by extension, both the communities in which jails and prisons sit and the communities to which released individuals return.

In a time like this, we can find ourselves overwhelmed by data, statistics, and numbers. They can make us lose sight of what it all means: the infected are real people fighting for their lives against a virus that is entirely new. This article frames the data and maps demonstrating the spread of COVID across the US with the story of how the pandemic has affected each and every one of us.
This dashboard displays the Standardized Mortality Ratio (SMR) of Black and Latinx Population to Covid-19 in comparison to White population for the states for which the data are available (+New York City).
This dashboard uses data from the US Census Current Population Survey to estimate child care demand for the children of workers in critical sectors.
This map illustrates data about the number of essential workers throughout the United States who are at risk of complications conditional on COVID-19 (coronavirus) infection.
Where you live can have a significant impact on how COVID-19 affects you. The intention of these maps is to examine how geographic access affects people locally and nationally.
