Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment (PDPHE) enhanced and updated its COVID-19 data website to provide a comprehensive summary of the virus in Pueblo County. Effective Friday, August 12, 2022, the website will be updated weekly by Friday at 5:00 p.m.
PDPHE added COVID-19 case data to its website when the first cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Pueblo County during the Spring of 2020. Over the past two years, data for hospitalizations, wastewater and vaccinations have been added to this website.
“Local data is crucial to monitor progress and be able to demonstrate and evaluate the impact of COVID-19,” stated Katie Davis, deputy director at the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment. Davis added, “These updates make it easy for the public to use and understand trends in cases, hospitalizations, deaths, wastewater, and vaccination data in one convenient location. By working with the Pueblo County Health Equity Task Force and community leaders, the website is more interactive and uses data equity techniques to improve usability and accessibility for the public.
PDPHE is committed to continuous quality improvement, and the updated website is part of ongoing efforts to refine and improve data visualizations. Data included to the updated webpage are as follows:
- General COVID-19 data- critical, often looked for by the public
- Detailed COVID-19 data – in-depth guide to Pueblo County COVID-19 data
