COVID Testing Information

The dashboard below contains COVID testing information for incarcerated individuals, staff, and longitudinal positive cases for those groups over time since COVID testing began on March 23, 2020.

The dashboard below has 3 pages, with a navigation bar at the bottom of the dashboard:
