Data notes

Louisiana reports probable deaths on a weekly basis.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people)* from Total PCR tests (people) in the absence of better data.

On August 30 Louisiana's reported data included 532 older cases that had not previously been reported; these cases had specimen collection dates ranging back to July 1.

On August 26, 2020, Louisiana started reporting Probable cases, this caused a notable increase in Total cases.

On June 19, 2020, Louisiana's data changed due to deduplication and the state's removal of out-of-state cases.

Between April 20 and April 24, 2020, Louisiana did not report testing data from commercial labs due to a state review of data.
