Saline County Health Department to end regular COVID-19 reports

Saline County Health Department

The Saline County Health Department will end regular reporting of "COVID by the Numbers," March 9. At this time the Saline County COVID dashboard will also be removed.

While our public reporting is ending, the County Health Department will continue to provide COVID services as needed and as we are able.

Since the pandemic began much of our staffing, time, and resources have been diverted to combat the pandemic. Unfortunately, many long-standing and valuable programs provided by the Health Department have not received the attention they merit during that time. Our staff is looking forward to a renewed focus on programming and services unrelated to COVID.

The goal of public reporting was to give the public an accurate understanding of COVID in our county. Welcome changes like reliable at-home testing like ubiquitous at home testing, means reported data is less reflective of the overall situation. Additionally, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has taken over all new COVID case investigations.
