New Online Resources Available to Track COVID-19 Data
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – The Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) has introduced a new dashboard featuring COVID-19 data from when the first case presented itself on March 6 to present time.
The dashboard is updated daily and includes the number of COVID-19 cases, recoveries, deaths, hospitalizations, illness onset, and cases identified by gender, ethnicity, and race. The dashboard allows residents to stay updated on the virus by combining all statistics in a convenient location (www.sedgwickcounty.org).
Data collected may or may not represent the true prevalence of COVID-19 within Sedgwick County. SCHD encourages residents to stop the spread of the disease and not become a number on the dashboard, by washing hands, covering coughs, practicing social distancing, and staying home.
If residents are feeling symptomatic, please visit the new online Testing Site Locator for a location and for contact information of a health center near takes samples to test for COVID-19.
