COVID-19 BTV Dashboard

COVID-19 BTV Dashboard

Since early 2020, the City's Covid-19 Analytics Team has maintained a dashboard of key information about the impacts of the pandemic to aid local officials in data-driven decision-making and to help inform residents about our local response efforts. As of late 2022, this dashboard has been condensed to include information from the CDC, the City's own wastewater monitoring program, and the Vermont Department of Health. Data is updated weekly, typically on Friday.  

Notice: Burlington will suspend the covid wastewater testing program as of April 3rd, 2023.


Wastewater Monitoring

Since August of 2020, the City of Burlington has been implementing SARS-CoV-2 Wastewater Monitoring Program as an effort to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The technology analyzes wastewater samples to look for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA gene copies/fragments. The initiative began as a collaboration between the City of Burlington, the Vermont Department of Health (VDH), and participating research partners at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the University of Vermont. Since 2022, the City has continued this program, and shares weekly samples via this public facing dashboard, and with the Vermont Department of Health. The City has also participated in sending samples through the CDC national wastewater surveillance program, which aggregates data from multiple plants throughout Chittenden County.
