Indiana Department of Health announces changes to COVID-19, monkeypox dashboards

The Indiana Department of Health announced changes to its COVID-19 and monkeypox dashboards Thursday. The updates reflect a change in publishing schedules and new COVID-19 surveillance tools.

Starting this week, the COVID-19 dashboards will be updated on Wednesdays by 5 p.m. Nationally, COVID-19 is being evaluated weekly rather than daily.

Breakthrough case counts and hospitalizations have also been removed from the Our Shot dashboard and youth dashboard.

New to the website is a wastewater surveillance dashboard that shows the results of SARS-CoV-2 tests conducted on untreated wastewater. The surveillance can serve as an early sign that COVID-19 is spreading in a community.

The monkeypox dashboard will also be updated weekly to reflect declining case counts.
