DHS Licensed Facilities COVID-19 Data​

The Department of Human Services (DHS) licenses and regulates thousands of programs and facilities across Pennsylvania's 67 counties that provide services and supports to people of all ages with a broad range of needs. These programs and facilities are operated by private providers and county/local governments.

DHS is sharing data on cases of COVID-19 among staff and individuals in care at DHS-licensed residential programs and child care facilities. While DHS has implemented a data governance process designed to ensure data accuracy, this data is self-reported by providers and DHS cannot independently guarantee the accuracy of each data point reported. However, we recognize the public's interest in this information and the importance of transparency during this crisis. DHS is reporting this data to the public as a reflection of the information the department is collecting from providers and using to inform decisions in real time.

This information will be updated on a daily basis. Data listed here is included in reporting of COVID-19 cases by the Department of Health, which includes data on personal care homes and assisted living residences licensed by DHS. This data is available on the Department of Health's long-term care facility data page. For more information on COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Licensed Facilities  

COVID-19 Cases Since March 2020
This data provide the total number (cumulative) of COVID-19 cases that have occurred in community-based residential settings licensed by DHS's Office of Developmental Programs. These include Community Homes for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability and Life Sharing Homes, which provide 24/7 residential care and services to individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism.  Most Community Homes serve 3-4 people.  Life Sharing Homes may not serve more than two people. 

To protect the confidentiality of personal health information and the privacy of individuals, DHS is reporting this data by county rather than by program. Some programs serve fewer than five individuals, and reporting information at this level potentially violates the department's obligation to protect individual privacy and personal health information as required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
