Reopening PA: Data-Based Heatmap and Graphs May 30, 2020

Counties are starting to open!!  I’m so excited, and anxious, and nervous, all at the same time… 

Naturally, being the data nerd that I am, I want to follow the counties as they move from one phase to the next.  So I created my own reopening heatmap using the number of cases reported by the State of PA’s Health Department in the last 14 days, per 100k residents of the county.  Please note, this is not PA’s official reopening map.  Official guidance and details regarding Pennsylvania’s phased reopening can be found here.

Of course, a heatmap only shows us a snapshot in time and doesn’t really give us much insight into how a county is trending.  So to provide more context, I also created a few graphs similar to the ones featured on my PA COVID-19 Stats page for all counties in the state.  If you’d like more details about a particular county, just use the drop down in the Individual PA County chart. 

And just for fun, I’ve included an animated bar chart at the bottom of the page so you can watch the daily change in each county over time 🙂

As always, stay well –
