Changes to the Monroe County COVID-19 Dashboard:
1) COVID Tests and % of COVID Tests that were positive (7 day average)
At the start of the pandemic, the Monroe County Department of Public Health used a system called CDESS to track individuals tested for COVID-19 to determine the percentage of County residents tested. The CDESS system only counts individuals, not the number of tests they have undergone.
As the pandemic has continued, it has become common for many people to undergo multiple tests, especially individuals who work in a health care setting. CDESS does not count these additional tests, so it does not accurately reflect the percentage of tests that are positive in Monroe County.
Since New York State uses the percentage of tests that are positive to determine Monroe County’s positivity rate, we are changing our dashboard to reflect that percentage. Using a system called ECLRS, we are now counting tests taken rather than using CDESS to count individuals.
This eliminates the ongoing discrepancy between the New York State and Monroe County dashboards and provide information that is more useful during this stage of the pandemic.
2) People Released from Isolation
At the start of the pandemic, the Monroe County Department of Public Health used the term “recovered” to describe people who have completed their isolation period and are no longer considered infectious.
As the pandemic has continued, it has become evident that many people have mild to severe symptoms that continue beyond their isolation period. Therefore, we feel that “released” is a more appropriate term than “recovered” to describe these individuals.
3) 7-Day Average of New COVID-19 Positive Cases
We are adding this to the dashboard since it is a key metric as we track the prevalence of the disease in our community.
