|Data Notes |
Please refer to our Data FAQ for detailed information about the data.
The Summary tab provides a weekly summary of the data for the most recent MMWR week (Sunday-Saturday). A detailed breakdown of these data by day can be found on the Trends tab.
Test data reflect number of tests reported and includes people more than once if an individual is tested multiple times. Individuals with multiple tests in a single day are only counted once each day. Non-residents are included in test data. Tests reported include PCR and antigen tests; at-home tests are excluded from counts as they do not have oversight by Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
Case data is reported with and without non-residents of Rhode Island. Counts reported include confirmed and probable cases and exclude any positive tests without lab oversight by Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). Reinfections are included in the case counts from 9/1/21 onward. Case data reflect the first positive test for each distinct episode of COVID-19 infection. Case rates per 100,000 residents exclude non-residents of Rhode Island.
All hospital data in the Summary and Trends tabs include out-of-state residents prior to January 1, 2023. Hospital admission and hospital discharge data exclude out-of-state residents from January 1, 2023, onward. The number of people hospitalized, number of people in the ICU, and number of people on a ventilator reflect the number of people hospitalized in Rhode Island hospitals, some of whom may not be Rhode Island residents.
Number of confirmed deaths reported among Rhode Island residents reported on the Summary tab reflect the number of deaths that were reported to RIDOH the prior week. Please note that this is different than the date of death, which is reported in the Trends tab.
Vaccination data reported in the Google sheets include Rhode Island residents only and are limited to those with a record in RICAIR (Rhode Island Child and Adult Immunization Registry). Data are included for residents vaccinated in RI, MA, CT, NJ, and NYC. Residents who received a vaccination from a Veterans Affairs facility in Rhode Island on or after November 14, 2022, are also included. Data for Rhode Island residents who were vaccinated at other federal facilities or in states not listed here are not included unless they have submitted a copy of their vaccination record to the Rhode Island Department of Health. Please see the Data Tracker on the hub site for estimated vaccination coverage as reported by the CDC, which includes doses administered to all Rhode Island residents.
At least partially vaccinated reflects residents who have received at least one dose of a primary vaccine series and includes the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
Completed primary vaccine series reflects residents who have received all recommended doses of a primary vaccine series.
First booster or additional dose reflects residents who received at least one vaccine beyond the primary vaccine series on or after August 13, 2021.
Second booster or additional dose reflects residents who received at least two vaccines beyond the primary vaccine series on or after August 13, 2021.
