As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the York community, the City of York’s response must also continue to adapt to meet the needs of our residents and combat the challenges presented by this public health crisis. Today we have released a new page on the City of York website containing up-to-date COVID-19 daily and weekly metrics. This website update is a precursor to the release of a public-facing comprehensive COVID-19 dashboard anticipated to go live in the next few months.
The Bureau of Health remains a critical asset to the City and our response to COVID-19 providing a conduit for funding and communications from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and directly providing necessary public health disease prevention services to our community. Some of these efforts have included conducting disease surveillance activities, performing COVID-19 case investigations, and establishing a contact tracing program as the threat of COVID-19 entering our community became apparent.
The City of York is committed to transparent, effective, and efficient communication with our residents and the community at large. Therefore, the Bureau of Health has released a new COVID-19 webpage, accessible via the main page at https://yorkcity.org, that includes daily and weekly COVID-19 metrics and various resources available to the public. This website update is a precursor to the release of a public-facing comprehensive COVID-19 dashboard anticipated to go live in the next few months.
The dashboard will enable the City of York to share up-to-date community level COVID-19 information with the public in a visual format and will serve as an analytics tool for the City and other community agencies to identify communities disparately affected by COVID-19, informing our COVID-19 response, and community recovery efforts.View The New Page
