COVID-19 Data for Florida

New Data – Developed for the Florida Community COVID Dashboard

For questions related to this documentation or the website, dashboards, and associated maps, data and applications, please email us at Contact@FloridaCovidAction.com.

For the current data definitions and schema information for DOH published data, please contact DOH directly at COVID-19@FLHealth.gov. The most recent PDF version of this information can be downloaded here. Data obtained from DOH for the Florida COVID Action website can be found here.

Most data maintained by DOH is updated every day, typically between 11 AM – 12 PM ET (UTC-4). We update any data based on DOH data shortly thereafter, no later than 2 PM ET (UTC-4) each day. If DOH data is delayed, our data will be delayed, as well, since we insist on using the most authoritative data available. We also pull in the daily Department of Corrections data, which is updated at 12:00 PM daily.

Historical COVID Data for Florida:

Note: The University of South Florida has data backed up from DOH from the launch of dashboard in March. You can view their main data website here or visit their data archive hub here.

What I’m looking to find:

  1. Data on community resources – including (but not limited to – food banks, elder care, transportation assistance, assistance with pets and children, etc., from county to local level. If a fire station is giving away boxed lunches, let me know. If a closed school is providing technology, books or food for kids, let me know. If a group of people decided to form a volunteer dog-walking crew to help those with restricted mobility or those advised not to go out (whether positive or vulnerable), let me know.
  2. Local data on deaths, hospitalizations and cases that may not be published by the Florida DOH.
  3. Your stories, how this virus has impacted you and your family, and your hopes going into the future.
