States ranked by time taken for COVID-19 cases to double

The panel created the COVID Exit Strategy to track each state's progress toward halting the spread of COVID-19. The tracker uses data from a variety of sources, including the CDC, the COVID Tracking Project, Kaiser Family Foundation and news sources. Learn more here.
