Please note: There are some data visualizations that I may not update every day even if the data are made available daily. For example, for nationally-reported daily cases by state (national community profile page), many states do not report over the weekend, so I may wait until Monday or Tuesday to make certain all states' numbers are current.

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is still providing a COVID-19 report that disseminates information on cases, new casepositivity, vaccinations, and deaths. However, the report is provided weekly (not daily), and a myriad of extremely detailed datasets are no longer available, which substantially limits the amount of "drilldown" capability into the data. For many metrics, my dashboard remains at the mercy of the hardworking people at FDOH; therefore, I have revised the way I present information on those metrics to be consistent with the new reporting structure. It is important to emphasize that FDOH is still reporting data routinely to CDC, and the CDC's COVID Data Tracker provides many of the state- and county-level metrics on cases, testing, vaccinations, and deaths on a daily basis.
Although data on "current hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis of COVID-19" is no longer being reported by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), I have instead captured what is arguably even more granular data on confirmed and suspected "current hospitalizations", and on age-stratified new COVID-19 hospital admissions. The major downside is that this data is available at the state (not county) level, though the aforementioned COVID Data Tracker has some county-level charts on COVID hospitalizations. Although facility-level data also exist, data suppression for small counts renders much of the data less useful.
I still leverage data from the CDC for all-cause excess deaths during the pandemic as well as an overview of variants of concern.
