This tool contains the most updated information on hospital inpatient bed and ICU bed occupancy rates for last week and the week prior.

On November 25, 2020, our test data source, the Covid Tracking project, started collecting Total PCR tests (specimens) from the 'Wyoming Updates' section of Wyoming's COVID-19 page and started collecting Positive tests PCR (specimens) and Negative tests PCR (specimens) from the values in the graph on the 'Laboratory Results by Date' graph on their COVID-19 State and County Dashboards page. At the same time, they backfilled all three of the above time series based on the numbers from the second page, summing the positive and negative numbers to use for the historical totals.
This resulted in an increase in the total tests denominator.
Data Sources: Cases and deaths data from JHU CSSE. As of August 1, 2020, policy events are drawn from from various state-specific sources. Prior to that, the data source for policy events was the National Governor’s Association.
Our data provider, The Covid Tracking Project, is in the process of changing how it maps states’ data to the categories we use for our positivity calculations. These changes mean the category of data we use in our denominator (Total tests) may now include tests previously not included in our calculations, which in turn may result in a test positivity calculation that is lower than what we would have calculated for the state prior to the change.
With this significant change, we will once again review our data inputs and calculations to ensure that our numbers reflect the most responsible public health calculation of test positivity.
