In an effort to keep the community informed of the status of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic in San Joaquin County (SJC), Public Health Services (PHS) has launched a new online, interactive dashboard that expands access to timely and credible data for the public and community partners. Maps and other graphics found on the dashboard make it easier for viewers to visualize the data and its relationship within the county.
The dashboard provides SJC COVID-19 case count data and is available on the PHS website at www.sjcphs.org. It is updated with the most accurate and current information available including:
• Summary of total number of cases broken down to include total deaths, hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and outbreaks - updated daily;
• Interactive map by supervisor district showing the rate and number of cases and outbreaks - updated twice per week; and,
• Additional information in future updates, including details on demographics and cases by city.
“This data dashboard demonstrates that every community in San Joaquin County has been impacted by COVID-19. It is imperative to understand that there are many more individuals who are asymptomatic or who have mild symptoms and have not been tested or confirmed. Although those people may have some level of immunity, we are not sure what that level is, and we do not believe there is enough “herd” immunity to confer protection of the community in general,” San Joaquin County Public Health Officer Dr. Maggie Park advised. “This means everyone remains at risk for exposure and every person must make it their personal responsibility to stay the course – follow the guidance of the Stay-At-Home Orders, practice social distancing, and continue good hand-hygiene to keep the numbers low and stop the spread of the disease.”
