Douglas County COVID-19 Dashboard Data to Continue

OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — The Douglas County Department of Health is not going anywhere anytime soon.

The Douglas County Department of Health said Wednesday that while the county’s official COVID-19 emergency will soon expire, officials will continue to release data on their online dashboard.

County health officials reached out to the Board of Health on Wednesday morning to remind them and residents that we are still dealing with COVID in our community. For this reason, the Department of Health will not only continue to provide updates to its dashboard, but also plans to add more information to the site.

“It is very important that we continue to provide information to the public so that they can make the right decisions for themselves and their families; and help them understand what data we use to make decisions,” said Douglas County Health Director Dr. Lindsay Hughes. “And we really hope that as we modernize how we process data in the health department, we can be a lot more transparent.”

County officials are still building a new website that will include other health-related information such as food inspection reports and county air quality monitoring.

DCHD reports data on COVID-19 twice a week, publishing updated statistics on Mondays and Thursdays.
