The Schools dashboard shows COVID-19 data for schools and their surrounding communities.
The set of dashboards below is designed to provide an overview of the current and past state of COVID-19 in New Hampshire. Click between tabs to learn more about each dashboard. Users can also download raw CSV files of the data behind each visualization by clicking the download icon associated with each chart.
This dashboard represents data reported to DPHS since February 5, 2022. On this date, K-12 schools and colleges/universities switched to reporting weekly aggregate numbers of SARS-CoV-2 infections in students and staff instead of reporting individual cases (see HAN #55 for more information). At the end of each school week, K-12 schools and colleges/universities report the total number of cases during the prior Saturday-Friday, which will be reflected on this dashboard in the following week.Schools that did not report data for the past week’s reporting period will have “NR” listed under New Student Cases and New Staff Cases. The Last Reported Period column displays the last period for which the school reported data. Note that DPHS does not verify the information reported by schools prior to it being posted on this dashboard.
Are the University of New Hampshire's COVID-19 testing results integrated in the SONH COVID-19 Dashboards and press announcements?
Testing metrics on these dashboards may not exactly match information provided in the daily press release since UNH COVID-19 negative test result data is not yet fully integrated into the Public Health systems. UNH and DHHS are collaborating on an automated process to integrate testing information. Until this integration is complete, existing dashboards will report positive results from UNH's COVID-19 testing. Information including combined SONH and UNH COVID-19 PCR tests and test positivity rate can be found here: New Hampshire Antigen and PCR Test Results with All University of New Hampshire Test Included and UNH's COVID-19 Dashboard is available here: https://www.unh.edu/coronavirus.
Why don't all metrics match exactly between dashboards and between days when the dashboard is viewed?
New Hampshire's goal is to provide accurate and up-to-date information as quickly as possible. This can lead to circumstances where information is available in some contexts, but not others. For example, only partial demographic information may be available for some cases at a particular point in time. However, this type of information is continuously being updated as new information becomes available through ongoing public health case investigation and outreach. Explanations are provided within the dashboards when these circumstances arise. Additionally, data fixes and improvements may lead to certain previously displayed data to be updated with more accurate or complete information.
