These sources, along with all others featured in previous weeks, are included in the COVID-19 Data Dispatch resource list.
- The COVID Tracking Project’s City Dataset: For about five months, COVID Tracking Project volunteers collected and standardized data from highly populated cities and counties across the country. The project started in late May with the intent of tracking COVID-19 in cities that were seeing large Black Lives Matter protests, then expanded following the Sunbelt surge in June. 65 cities and counties are included in the dataset; you can read more about the dataset’s methodology and major findings on the Project’s blog.
- COVID-19 State and County Policy Orders: This dataset includes over 3,000 COVID-19-related policies at the state and county level addressing public health, local economies, and disparities during the pandemic. Data were compiled by students at the Boston University School of Public Health and other student volunteers, and the dataset is housed at the HHS.
- School outbreaks in Maryland: Maryland has become the most recent state to report school COVID-19 data, including total cases associated with every K-12 school in the state. Neither testing numbers nor enrollment numbers are available, making it difficult to contextualize these case counts.
