DOH Launches COVID-19 Early Warning Monitoring Dashboard

The Department of Health (DOH) launched an online early warning monitoring dashboard that provides statewide and county level COVID-19 prevalence information to track incidence and severity of the disease on a weekly basis. The dashboard shows data points being used to assess the spread of the virus in the state and in each county, including difference in confirmed cases (last 7 days vs. previous 7 days); incidence rate (last 7 days and previous 7 days) per 100,000 residents; difference in the average daily number of COVID-19 hospitalizations in the last 7 days and the previous 7 days, and percent of hospital emergency department visits in the last 7 days and previous 7 days due to COVID-like-illness (CLI).
