COVID-19 Hospitalizations by Date

State Trend

Cases by Date of Illness

This chart tracks COVID-19 cases according to the date the person first became ill, rather than the date of test results. It’s the standard way of following the course of a disease in a population. The black average line helps identify upward or downward trending. (In the few cases where date of illness has not yet been determined, testing date is used.) Since we are still receiving reports of illnesses that began up to two weeks ago, expect the more recent dates on this chart to change.

Deaths by Date of Occurrence

What You Can Do

  • Be vaccinated. Vaccination is the most powerful step you can take to resume normal community life and stop unnecessary deaths.
  • Be tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms or believe you may have been exposed. See our guide to local testing providers and free testing at http://HealthyMS.com/covid19test
  • If you are unvaccinated, wear a mask whenever you are indoors, away from home.
  • If you are over 65, or have a chronic illness, avoid all large indoor gatherings, even if you are vaccinated.
