Missouri expands COVID-19 dashboards

The Rolla Daily News

The dashboards will now show multiple charts, maps and measures about COVID-19 and its impact in Missouri to help individuals, employers, nonprofits and schools better understand COVID-19 in their communities and make decisions accordingly.

Residents can find the new dashboards on the state’s Show Me Strong website, at https://showmestrong.mo.gov/data. 

The state's cross-governmental COVID-19 Fusion Cell helped coordinate development of the dashboards which include data from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Social Services, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, among others, according to a news release from the governor’s office. 

Missouri also coordinated with other stakeholders across the state in creating the newest version of the dashboards.

“Data are driving decisions for health care providers in communities throughout the state,” said Missouri Hospital Association Senior Vice President Dr. Leslie Porth. “The continuing evolution of our data tools allows all COVID-19 stakeholders to understand the status of the disease and respond accordingly.”

Additional improvements for mobile viewing of the dashboards are scheduled to be released later this week.
