The Springfield-Greene County Health Department has launched a new online dashboard that allows the public to view regional data related to COVID-19.

This dashboard covers five areas, including: 

  • detailed case information, including total and daily cases based on a person’s onset of symptoms and active, deceased and resolved cases.
  • hospital capability, which is based on hospital staffing, supplies and space available to respond to COVID-19.
  • public health capability, which is based on the capability to conduct epidemiological interviews and contact tracing, and risk pertaining to unmitigated community exposure for COVID-19.
  • testing capability, which measures the estimated community testing capability for COVID-19. The index is based on the available testing and result turnaround time.
  • regional data information, which measures the estimated public health capability and testing capability for surrounding counties.

It can be accessed at http://health.springfieldmo.gov/coronavirus and will be updated throughout the week. 

As our community moves toward recovery, it will be important that we know how the disease is moving through our population. This dashboard will inform community leaders and the public on the important metrics that will inform decision-making going forward.
