DPHHS To Discontinue COVID Dashboards
The Department of Public Health and Human Services has announce that with the federal Public Health Emergency ending on May 11, the agency plans to discontinue the weekly updates to the COVID-19 case tracking and vaccine dashboards.
The last update to the dashboards will take place on May 5, and they will subsequently no longer be available online after July 14.
In addition, DPHHS will no longer publish the monthly COVID-19 Monthly Epi Profile and vaccination reports, and the weekly demographic table reports. May 5 will be the last time these reports will be updated.
However, going forward, DPHHS will continue to work with local public health and tribal health agencies to conduct routine surveillance for COVID-19 cases and outbreaks, as with any reportable condition. In addition, relevant COVID-19 information will still be available on the DPHHS website.
COVID-19 data for Montana will still be available on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker website, which includes: COVID case, hospitalization, death, and vaccination data: https://covid. cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/# county-view?list_select_ state=Montana& data-type=Cases Variants and Genomic Surveillance: https://covid.cdc. gov/covid-data-tracker/#variant- proportions COVID wastewater surveillance data: https://covid. cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/# wastewater-surveillance.
