Tracking COVID-19 in Virginia
VDH continues to provide all of the data sets powering the VDH COVID-19 Dashboards through the Virginia Open Data Portal. These data sets capture all data since the beginning of COVID-19 reporting in Virginia and continue to increase in size each day. As a result, the data sets may take longer to update on the Virginia Open Data Portal; however, all data sets are expected to update by 12:00 noon daily.
This is different from the data displayed on the VDH COVID-19 Daily Dashboard which is updated daily, and data are available by 10:00am.

Are you feeling sick?
People with COVID-19 might not have any symptoms. If they do, their symptoms can range from mild to severe. Not everyone with COVID-19 will have all these symptoms. Symptoms typically appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
Important Information About COVID-19
COVID-19 is still spreading within Virginia, across the United States (U.S.), and in other countries. The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) urges Virginians who are not fully vaccinated to avoid travel, especially if they are at higher risk of serious COVID-19 or if they will be visiting someone at higher risk of serious COVID-19. Travelers who are fully vaccinated are less likely to get or spread COVID-19 while traveling, but international travelers should still follow additional precautions listed. All travelers should consider the risks for getting or spreading COVID-19 and follow recommendations and requirements at their destination.
Protect Your Health
Are you protected against COVID-19?
There is no single step or strategy that can stop the spread of COVID-19. Instead, we need to follow multiple strategies--all at the same time--to stop the spread.
Your layers of prevention
Everyone in Virginia age 6 months or older is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine!
Your layers of containment
Know Your COVID-19 Status
Contact tracing is an important part of how Virginia can stop the spread of COVID-19. Contact tracing and case investigations are important because it helps VDH to:
- Provide guidance and education about how to keep yourself and others safe
- Inform public health actions
- Understand communities hit hard by COVID-19
- Track the progress of the outbreak in Virginia
- Connect people with resources they may need
