COVID-19 Data Dashboard for Tompkins County

En esta página

Data iconWHILE the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have lessened, the virus continues to circulate throughout the community. The dashboard below gives residents and visitors a quick overview of the current state of  the COVID-19 disease in Tompkins County using data from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).

The data displayed in the dashboard are linked directly to NYSDOH datasets. The values update automatically when the source is available during the week. The dashboard will be reviewed by TCWH every Friday to update data as needed (except on holidays).

NOTE: Percent Positive Last 7 Days is no longer included in our dashboard. The dataset that our dashboard draws from has been changed by the New York State Department of Health as of September 1, 2023. The new dataset does not include the total tests performed or the percent positive metric that is calculated from total tests. The dataset updated through August 31 has been archived. The archived dataset is available here. Both datasets begin on March 1, 2020.

Data Notes & Sources

TCHD no longer reports the number of tests conducted.

Hospital capacity is tracked based on the number of beds used for COVID-19 patients. Cayuga Health System reports their capacity directly to NYS, and the dashboard will reflect this data.

Death data is from the NYSDOH system. Previously, TCHD reported this information based on the death certificates processed by Tompkins County Vital Records; county residents whose death occurs in county, or if they are informed by an out-of-county entity. NYSDOH tabulates from death certificates statewide.

Case Rate and Positives Last 7 Days is from PCR tests only, and do not include any cases which test positive by antigen tests. Thus, they do not reflect the full number of Covid infections occurring in our county.

Percent Positive Last 7 Days only reflects those who have chosen to get a PCR test or were required to have a PCR test for medical, employment, travel, or other reasons. Thus, they reflect a selected population which may not reflect the community at large.

COVID-19 vaccination data is available directly from the CDC’s Covid data tracker, or using the links below.
