EDITOR’S NOTE: As of Sept. 29, 2022, this page is no longer being updated.

After nearly two years, CT Mirror is shutting down its COVID Tracker.

The decision to remove the tool ultimately comes down to this: We don’t want to publish data we know is wrong.

Given the unreported and extensive home-test data, these metrics are an incomplete picture of the COVID situation in Connecticut.

Even the simplest of charts — like “cases over time” — have become meaningless.

We will continue to report on COVID metrics in our individual stories and do so in a way that provides as much context as possible. You can find all of CT Mirror’s COVID-19 reporting here.
