Southern Nevada Health District adopts weekly COVID-19 data reporting schedule as metrics continue to decline
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
March 10, 2022
LAS VEGAS – COVID-19 metrics have continued to steadily decline in Clark County, and the Southern Nevada Health District will begin updating its dashboard on a weekly basis. The last daily update to the dashboard will occur on Friday, March 11. The Health District’s COVID-19 dashboard, aggregate and trend reports will be updated and posted each Wednesday, beginning March 16.
Daily COVID-19 counts reflect newly reported cases that were tested in the preceding days, and the Health District redistributes these cases by symptom onset or diagnosis date to better reflect disease trends in the community. While COVID-19 remains in the community at lower levels, other disease metrics and trends along with the new CDC framework will provide better insight for monitoring the level of disease in Clark County.
The Health District is committed to gathering, analyzing, and reporting local COVID-19 data to assist with and direct the ongoing COVID-19 response. Data are integral for anticipating new trends, identifying emerging variants, planning ongoing vaccination and testing initiatives, and keeping the public and response partners informed.
COVID-19 resources and information are available on the Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid.
The Southern Nevada Health District serves as the local public health authority for Clark County, Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas. The agency safeguards the public health of the community’s residents and visitors through innovative programs, regulations, and initiatives focused on protecting and promoting their health and well-being. More information about the Health District, its programs, services, and the regulatory oversight it provides is available at www.SNHD.info.
