(Victor Valley)– San Bernardino County is unveiling an expanded and enhanced COVID-19 dashboard featuring additional data to help evaluate our progress in responding to the coronavirus outbreak. The new data will provide a much better understanding of how the virus is impacting our community and offer more accurate breakdowns by race, ethnicity, age, geography and other factors.
The enhanced dashboard, which will also include significantly greater detail on testing results, can always be found as a link from our COVID-19 website home page, and specifically here.
“The potential to loosen strict stay-at-home requirements and begin re-opening our economy requires a robust ability to collect and analyze relevant data. Data that can measure our progress on the Six Critical Indicators Gov. Newsom is using to determine when stay-at-home orders can be relaxed,” said Trudy Raymundo, the County of San Bernardino Director of Public Health.
“These indicators range from assessing whether our hospitals are prepared to handle potential surges in patients, to our ability to monitor and protect our residents through testing, contact tracing, and isolating, as well our success in supporting those who test positive or are exposed to the virus.”
Raymundo said that obtaining more detailed information on testing results will enable us to identify any disparities that might emerge so they can be quickly addressed. “We’ll gain a better understanding of who is being tested and where they are being tested, while enabling us to identify any gaps that need filling,” she said.
The enhanced dashboard will be updated frequently throughout the day, and can be accessed through the County’s COVID-19 website at http://sbcovid19.com/.
