The Cortland County Health Department will launch an interactive data dashboard to streamline data reporting within the department, to better define our past and present data reporting processes/definitions, to better emphasize vaccination data, and to report more detailed demographic data to community members.


A community presentation about the dashboard will be held virtually on 02/15/2021 at 6:30 PM via Zoom.

Since March 2020, the Cortland County Health Department has strived to provide Cortland County residents with the most accurate, up to date, and transparent data. Due to the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, this responsibility took different forms over the past two years.

The Cortland County Health Department will be launching an interactive data dashboard to streamline data reporting within the department, to better define our past and present data reporting processes/definitions, to better emphasize vaccination data, and to report more detailed demographic data to community members.

Throughout the dashboard, there will be details outlining any changes made from previous data reporting definitions or sources, as well as limitations to the provided data.

As long as data is available, the dashboard will include:

Daily Updates:
• Total Deaths
• Vaccination Rates
• Total/New Hospitalizations
• Total/New Positive Test Results (not including home tests)
Weekly Updates:
• Vaccination Rates by demographic groups
• Total/New Cases (including home tests)
Quarterly Updates:
• Cases by demographic groups
Yearly Updates:
• Deaths by demographic groups

More details to come.
