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
Texas A&M University College Station, Texas 4,354
Texas Tech University Lubbock, Texas 3,367
University of Texas at Austin Austin, Texas 3,325
Baylor University Waco, Texas 2,981
Texas State University San Marcos, Texas 2,018
Texas Christian University Fort Worth, Texas 1,972
University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston Galveston, Texas 1,634
University of Texas at El Paso El Paso, Texas 1,624
University of North Texas Denton, Texas 1,537
Southern Methodist University Dallas, Texas 1,309
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 Texas, The Times primarily relies on reports from the state, as well as health districts or county governments that often report ahead of the state. Texas 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 25, 2021: Brazos County announced a backlog of about 2,000 cases.
  • Feb. 1, 2021: Texas announced many backlogged cases from unspecified days from Health Region 7 in Central Texas.
  • Dec. 11, 2020: Texas began reporting probable cases, resulting in a one-day increase.
  • Sept. 21, 2020: Texas added a backlog of many cases.
  • July 27, 2020: Texas changed its methodology for reporting coronavirus deaths to use death certificates, causing a spike in the total number by including deaths that were not previously announced.
  • June 16, 2020: Texas added a backlog of 1,476 cases from prison inmates in Anderson and Brazoria Counties.

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.
