NACCHO Launches New Interactive COVID-19 Dashboard

Apr 22, 2020 | Taylarr Lopez

Accurate, timely, and localized data are crucial resources for local health departments’ (LHD) fight against COVID-19. On April 22, NACCHO launched its COVID-19 Data Lab, powered by Esri, to showcase available data that is geared toward the specific needs of LHDs. In this first iteration, LHDs will be able to utilize NACCHO’s new, interactive COVID-19 Dashboard to explore the extent of COVID-19 tests, cases, and deaths in their state and county.

Since the launch of this tool in April, NACCHO has made some updates:

  • June 9: NACCHO added new “Community & COVID-19 Dashboard,” highlighting select county and state-level data related to COVID-19 and local populations. Users can now view hospital and case data specific to counties, as well as testing and influenza-like illness data specific to states. These data are intended only as one resource to be used in coordination with other resources to make decisions about re-opening. In addition to the new dashboard, users are now able to download a .CSV file of the data presented on the “U.S. COVID-19 Dashboard.” With this new functionality, users can download the total case data from the previous 30 days for all U.S. states or just for a specific state. These updates offer more ways for users to explore and gain meaningful insights into the current state of COVID-19 in local jurisdictions.
  • May 8: NACCHO updated the dashboard to allow users to view the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases within the context of their county’s overall population, highlighting “hot spots” where the number of cases is high compared to the population. The data dashboard has also been updated for users to view the rise in confirmed cases within the last 30 days. Finally, data can now be viewed down to the Local Health Department jurisdictional boundary; however, please note that, particularly for city or multi-city health departments, data may not include accurate case counts in those states not reporting data to the zip code level. These updates offer more informative, meaningful insights into the current state of COVID-19 in local jurisdictions and can be used to inform official decisions on easing stay-at-home orders and re-opening local economies.

The data for this dashboard is updated multiple times a day and is created and maintained by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at the Johns Hopkins University and supported by Esri Living Atlas team and JHU Data Services.

This lab will also house Esri’s impact planning reports for U.S. states, territories, counties, and municipalities. These reports help LHDs better understand the demographics of the communities that are currently being impacted, the number of cases, and the average number of hospital beds. All 3,220 reports are currently available and provide unique information to assist in the planning and response to COVID-19.

This lab will continue to grow as we develop more resources to assist LHDs through this epidemic.
