Arapahoe County Public Health recently launched a new COVID-19 dashboard for the public to track county-specific COVID-19 data. It includes information on cases, hospitalizations, deaths, breakthroughs, testing, and vaccinations.
The dashboard is updated every Tuesday using data from the previous week. The new platform ensures residents and businesses can quickly find the most current information about COVID-19 in the community. Statewide data can be found on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website.
The dashboard reflects data from confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases among Arapahoe County residents. It’s organized with six interactive tabs:
- Cases: Provides data on COVID-19 weekly case counts and 7-day incidence rate by age group, race, and ethnicity.
- Hospitalizations: Includes monthly COVID-19-related hospitalizations. There have been 9,209 hospitalizations in Arapahoe County since March 2020.
- Deaths: Provides monthly COVID-19 deaths. Since March 2020, 1,361 deaths have been reported within the County.
- Breakthroughs: Includes information about breakthrough cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
- Testing: Shows weekly COVID-19 tests administered and percentage positivity.
- Vaccinations: Includes how many COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in Arapahoe County. Nearly 78 percent of County residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while only 20 percent of county residents have received an Omicron booster dose.
In addition, COVID-19 Community Levels are updated weekly on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. COVID-19 Community Levels help people decide which prevention actions to take based on the latest information. Communities are classified as low, medium, or high and Arapahoe County is currently labeled as ‘low.’ The CDC recommends communities in low stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, and get tested if you have symptoms.
