Coronavirus Maps and Data Resources

Story maps and dashboards, with Interactive mapping applications and demographics down to the census tract, have been created by the Northern Virginia Regional Commission.  Northern Virginia mapping and summary data on coronavirus cases and numerous demographics on potentially vulnerable populations in the region and statewide are provided.  These were created as a service to share Virginia statewide and regional data and maps to assist government and non-government entities in identifying communities that may be most affected by the coronavirus pandemic and may need support. 

In addition to the data and maps found on this dashboard, other Northern Virginia coronavirus resources, as well as national resources, can be found by going to the Coronavirus Regional Services/Information Website.  


Coronavirus Cases and Vulnerable Populations for Impact Planning - Northern Virginia

This dashboard contains up-to-the-minute, real-time coronavirus case summary information for the region and its counties and cities.  The coronavirus information comes from the renowned Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 GIS database.  The dashboard also contains numerous demographics for assessing potentially vulnerable populations in Northern Virginia.

Economic Impact of Coronavirus - Northern Virginia and Virginia

Information on the economic impact of the coronavirus due to shelter-in-place and non-essential business closings are found in the charts document and the interactive map. The map displays the number of initial unemployment claims per 1,000 persons in the labor force during the two week period of March 15 to March 28, 2020.  Initial unemployment claims for these two weeks combined totaled 158,774 for Virginia and 36,826 for Northern Virginia.  This was approximately 3 to 4 times more initial unemployment insurance claims than in one months time during the recession of 2008-2010, as well as the government shutdown of 2013, for Virginia and the Northern Virginia region.  There have been three recessions since 1990, with the 2008-2010 recession leading to the highest unemployed population in Northern Virginia on record.  The coronavirus unemployed population is expected to shatter that record. This analysis used data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Virginia Employment Commission.  The latest available labor force data was used for this analysis, which was January 2020.

Social Vulnerability - Virginia

The U.S. Center for Disease Control's (CDC) 2018 Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) indicates the relative social vulnerability of every Virginia census tract.  Social vulnerability is a measure of an area's resilience when confronted by disease outbreaks like the coronavirus (COVID-19) and stress on human nature such as natural or man-made disasters.  The SVI can be used by governments and non-government entities to identify communities that may need support.
