COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Jan. 27, 2023: The CDC has listed three Connecticut Counties—Litchfield, Middlesex and New Haven Counties—in the High/Orange category as part of its weekly COVID-19 Community Levels update. Fairfield, Hartford, New London, Tolland and Windham Counties are listed in the Medium/Yellow category.  Because all eight Connecticut counties are either in the High or Medium categories, the Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Map for updates.

Requests for HIV Surveillance Data

The HIV Surveillance Program routinely shares data with public health partners, community groups, the medical community, students, and anyone interested in learning more about the epidemiology of HIV in Connecticut.

The typical data cycle starts with reportable HIV-related laboratory test results received at DPH which are then entered or imported into the HIV Surveillance System (eHARS). The data is reviewed for completeness and quality and then analyzed to produce accurate and reliable data products for our consumers. 

HIV Statistics are updated every 6 months however the June data release for the prior reporting year is considered preliminary. The full processing cycle for de-duplication, death reporting and case reporting is one year. 

With regard to security and confidentiality, data that may be identifiable due to small cell sizes are repressed. For more information about HIV data security and confidentiality, please visit: Data Security and Confidentiality for TB, HIV, STD and Viral Hepatitis Programs.

The HIV Surveillance Program processes data requests that may be unique to specific populations, geographical areas or time frames.
