JACKSON, Wyo. — Beginning today, community members will see some changes to the Teton County COVID-19 dashboard.

Due to the fact that COVID continues to circulate in the community, the case rate and percent of positive tests will remain on the dashboard. Additionally, there will be no changes to how the COVID-19 risk level is determined. The Health Department explained that the amount of virus currently circulating in the community remains a major factor in determining an individual’s risk of exposure.

“This information is still important for members of our community that are more vulnerable or anyone who wishes to take steps to avoid exposure to COVID-19,” said Director of Health, Jodie Pond.

However, a few displays will be added to the dashboard that have become relevant in this stage of the pandemic.

“You will see some new COVID-19 data presented that we feel is important to show at this time in the pandemic and helps tell a more complete picture of the COVID-19 situation in our community,” said Pond.

New metrics on the dashboard will reflect the percent of the population that is vaccinated, the percent of the population that has received a booster and a graph of hospitalizations throughout the pandemic.
