Essential COVID-19 stats: Where testing, case counts, and outbreaks stand in your state

With the fall semester in full swing across the country, COVID-19 is running rampant in many communities. Public health resource COVID Exit Strategy found that 19 states as of Aug. 16 were facing uncontrolled spread of the novel coronavirus. These states, including Texas, Florida, and others across the South and Midwest, are seeing significant upward trends in new cases, hospitals filling up with patients, and insufficient test capacity to meet their residents' needs.

Despite rising cases, universities included in the Big Ten voted Sept. 16 to start their football season this October. While the universities set up monitoring criteria and rapid testing for players, commentators such as USA Today's Christine Brennan have criticized the move to open as it will put other students, faculty, and the communities around these universities at risk. Meanwhile, hurricanes in the south and wildfires on the west coast, along with other weather disasters across the country, are making pandemic safety measures difficult and putting additional pressure on Americans who may already be unemployed, uninsured, or otherwise hit by COVID-19.

In an Aug. 25 report by U.S. News & World Report, Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, said schools must have a "sustainable plan" to stay open this fall. Some states such as Maine have seen community transmission rates remain low while children congregate. In other states like Florida and Georgia, local leaders are pushing schools to open while denying administrators the funding, supplies, and data needed to make this decision. Every state has its own policies and strategy around school reopening, as well as testing, tracing, and other COVID-19 control measures.

With news coming so quickly amid reopenings, reclosings, overcrowded hospitals, and new insights into how COVID-19 spreads, Stacker compiled essential COVID-19 statistics from several different sources to paint a clearer picture of how the pandemic is progressing in each state. Case counts, fatality counts, and testing counts are up to date as of Sept. 16 and sourced from the COVID-19 Tracking Project at The Atlantic, a volunteer effort that compiles and standardizes COVID-19 data from state public health departments. Hospital capacity data are sourced from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hospital capacity estimates and are up to date as of Sept. 14. Nursing home outbreak data are sourced from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Nursing Home COVID-19 Public File and are up to date as of Aug. 30. Prison and jail outbreak data are sourced from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) COVID-19 Behind Bars Data Project, spearheaded by Professor Sharon Dolovich, and are up to date as of Sept. 15.

Keep reading to see how case counts have fluctuated in your state, where states stand on flattening the curve, and where the biggest outbreaks so far have taken place.
