COVID-19 Data

The latest novel coronavirus COVID-19-related data and maps for the City of St. Louis

Data is updated on a continual basis and is therefore subject to change. Sometimes through case investigation the DOH learns that an individual actually lives outside of the City, so they may be transferred to the appropriate jurisdiction. Likewise, other jurisdictions may transfer cases to the City. So case count totals and underlying data will be dynamic to reflect the most current information.

CDC description of local risk based on current case and hospital numbers
New Cases per 100k are calculated using the most current City of St. Louis confirmed case counts over the past 7 days. The number of hospitalizations per 100k and the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients are pulled directly from the CDC's website. The Community Levels range from Low, Medium, and High based upon defined thresholds for each of these 3 important metrics. Each community level has recommended behaviors and prevention strategies for individuals and public health authorities. Learn more about the CDC's Community Levels and prevention strategies

Totals by Date

Totals By Specimen Collection Date View Data

Daily Case Change Chart

Note: Results for the last 14 days are preliminary and subject to change.

Case count totals shown in this graph represent specimen collection date, in other words, the day the individual was tested for COVID-19. There is a lag between when an individual is tested and when results are available, therefore the data is subject to change as new information becomes available. This also explains why recent dates do not have many (or any) cases listed, because cases that the DOH learns about are shown on the graph in previous days - when the person went for testing.

Daily Death Change Chart

Deaths are shown on the date the death was reported. Learn more.

Cumulative Totals Chart

Reproductive Number Chart

Note: Reproductive numbers for the last 14 days are preliminary and subject to change.

The Reproductive Number (R0, pronounced "R naught") is an estimation of how many people a COVID-19 positive case will transmit the virus to, on average. When R0 is above 1 the epidemic is expected to grow exponentially. For example, if R0=2 each case will infect 2 other people on average, and those two will infect 4 more people, who infect 8 more, then 16, and so forth. When the R0 equals 1 the epidemic will maintain itself, neither increasing or decreasing. And when R0 is less than 1 then the epidemic is expected to slow and eventually stop. Effective social distancing, hand washing, and wearing face masks reduces the spread and lowers R0. Learn more.
