Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

In response to the increasing and overwhelming interest in asymptomatic residents who wish to be tested for COVID-19, County officials have temporarily suspended scheduling residents for asymptomatic testing. Residents who called by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 26, will be called back for an appointment. Sedgwick County is asking for patience during this time. Information will be forthcoming when asymptomatic testing is resumed. 


Sedgwick County COVID-19 Data Dashboard

The Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) now has an online COVID-19 data dashboard on the Sedgwick County website. It features 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. It allows residents to stay updated on the virus by combining all statistics in one location.

Data collected may or may not represent the true prevalence of COVID-19 within Sedgwick County. Residents are encouraged 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.  See the link below or on the left sidebar under COVID-19 Data.

States Reporting Cases of COVID-19 to CDC*

* Data include both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 reported to CDC or tested at CDC since January 21, 2020, with the exception of testing results for persons repatriated to the United States from Wuhan, China and Japan. State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.
