Understanding Data & Prioritizing Resources

Data and information sharing help us provide assistance where it is needed most. We are working with federal partners to prioritize resources and inform private sector decisions on distributing supplies.

Data Sources

Community Mitigation Decision Support Tool

This tool puts the data for each metric in the President’s Guidelines for Opening Up America Again in one place. Officials can easily view their influenza- and coronavirus-like illnesses, case and death data, as well as a range of information on hospital capacity to determine whether community mitigation should be adjusted. Government officials can apply for an account to access.

FEMA's COVID-19 Geospatial Resource Center

FEMA's data hub gives the emergency management community the ability to share authoritative data, maps and apps, as well as enhance situational awareness for all partners responding to COVID-19.

The site includes both public and non-public data. Request access.

Diagnosed Cases

The Center for Disease Control is the best source for the latest data and graphs related to the number of cases reported at the state and national levels.

Testing and Patients

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) asked hospital administrators across the country to provide daily data reports on testing, capacity and utilization, and patient flows to support the public health response. Read the letter from HHS Secretary Azar to hospital administrators.

Right Help, Right Place, Right Time

FEMA is working with HHS and other partners to ensure limited supplies of critical protective and lifesaving equipment are in the right place, at the right time and in the right quantity. Our priority is getting equipment to areas that have high virus case counts and high fatality rates.

Prioritizing Where Supplies Go

We are working with the Healthcare and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council to prioritize where the federal government and private sector companies distribute critical supplies and equipment.

Federal personnel, healthcare officials and the public health sector use the latest CDC guidance and data to provide expert recommendations on priority locations.
