Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, reopened all businesses in early May, with social distancing rules, and later lifted all restrictions. Mr. Parson has touted the lack of statewide mandates in Missouri, though some cities, like St. Louis, have enacted their own restrictions.

About this data Sources: State and local health agencies (cases, deaths); U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (tests, hospitalizations). The seven-day average is the average of a day and the previous six days of data. Currently hospitalized is the most recent number of patients with Covid-19 reported by hospitals in the state for the four days prior. Dips and spikes could be due to inconsistent reporting by hospitals. Hospitalization numbers early in the pandemic are undercounts due to incomplete reporting by hospitals to the federal government. Tests represent the number of individual P.C.R. viral test specimens tested by laboratories and state health departments and reported to the federal government.

Outbreak clusters

Since March 2020, The Times has paid special attention to cases in the types of places with some of the worst outbreaks, like nursing homes, food processing plants and correctional facilities.

Cases Connected To Location Cases
University of Missouri Columbia, Mo. 3,073
Missouri State University Springfield, Mo. 1,869
University of Central Missouri Warrensburg, Mo. 858
Ozarks Technical Community College Springfield, Mo. 846
Northwest Missouri State University Maryville, Mo. 791
Southeast Missouri State University Cape Girardeau, Mo. 690
Saint Louis University St. Louis, Mo. 631
Truman State University Kirksville, Mo. 476
Washington University in St. Louis St. Louis, Mo. 471
Missouri University of Science and Technology Rolla, Mo. 418
About this data Information on cases linked to these places comes from official releases by governments, companies and institutions directly. The Times is publishing lists of groupings of 50 or more cases related to a specific site, workplace or event.

About the data

In data for Missouri, The Times primarily relies on reports from the state, as well as health districts or county governments that often report ahead of the state. Missouri typically releases new data each day. Weekend counts may be lower because fewer sources report to the state. The state reports cases and deaths based on a person*s permanent or usual residence.

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

  • March 29, 2021: The reported number of tests likely includes many older tests.
  • March 15, 2021: The daily testing count includes many older negative tests.
  • March 8, 2021: Missouri began reporting probable cases identified through antigen testing, resulting in a one-day increase in total cases.
  • Nov. 24, 2020: Missouri added many deaths from September through early November.
  • Oct. 15, 2020: Missouri removed many previously reported deaths.
  • Oct. 14, 2020: Missouri added new cases and deaths from several days, after the state did not update its data from Oct. 11 to Oct. 13 while resolving a technical error.
  • Oct. 10, 2020: Missouri added cases dating back several days after resolving a technical issue.
  • Sept. 30, 2020: Missouri adjusted its case count to reconcile records and adjust which jurisdictions cases and deaths were assigned to, causing both decreases and increases in counts in some counties and cities.
  • Cases in Kansas City and Joplin, both of which span multiple counties and have independent health departments, are being counted separately. The case numbers reported for Cass, Clay, Jackson and Platte Counties do not include Kansas City residents. The case numbers reported for Jasper and Newton Counties do not include Joplin residents.
  • The Times source for data in Kansas City, Jackson County and Platte County changed on Oct. 8 to data from the state health department, resulting in a one-day adjustment.

The tallies on this page include probable and confirmed cases and deaths.

Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
