HEALTH DISTRICT 3 COVID 19 DATA DASHBOARD

https://public.tableau.com/profile/southwest.district.health#!/

Health Alert Level assessments will be made on Wednesdays based on the prior two weeks’ data (assessing 7-day average of quantitative data points), starting on a Sunday and ending on a Saturday. At least two full weeks will be spent in a Health Alert Level before determinations to move to a lower less severe level (e.g. from High to Medium).

* The 7-day daily average incidence of new case range will be used along with other data thresholds to make decisions when considering moving between health alert levels and will not be used as a single indicator/cutoff/trigger to move to a higher or lower level.

Idaho Back to School Framework has identified three categories for determining transmission risk (table below). To assist schools located in the six-county region, Southwest District Health has cross-walked the Idaho Back to School Framework with the COVID-19 Health Alert Level advisory system.

COVID-19 VACCINE

As part of our ongoing effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community from disease, Southwest District Health is helping to distribute vaccine. This distribution follows the priority groups established by Idaho’s COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee (CVAC). The vaccine is delivered on a schedule determined by federal partners, helping to distribute vaccine to states around the United States. Because of limited supply, it may take several weeks to advance to each stage of the CVAC’s priority tier.

If you are looking for a healthcare evaluation to get tested for COVID-19, please contact a local hospital or your local healthcare provider. If you do not have a provider, please dial 211 for assistance. If you are experiencing a health emergency, please dial 911.

A vaccine for COVID-19 is only one of the ways to stop the spread of the disease. Because the supply of vaccine will be limited at first, doing other things to help stop the spread will be just as important as it is now. This means still wearing a face mask, staying at least 6-feet away from others, washing your hands often, and staying home if you are sick.

OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION

Healthcare providers, including dental and pharmacy professionals who fit within the Tier 1 priority group and individuals who fit within the Tier 2.1 priority group interested in the COVID-19 vaccine, are invited to reach out to SWDH staff by e-mailing COVIDvaccine@phd3.idaho.gov or calling the Southwest District Health COVID-19 Hotline, available Monday-Friday (with the exception of observed holidays) 8:00 AM-5:00 PM (MST) 208-455-5411.
