ADHS will update COVID-19 dashboard weekly as of March 2

Throughout the pandemic, the state government and Arizona’s hospitals have worked together to provide data critical to understanding and responding to the invisible enemy that is COVID-19. This partnership has made the ADHS COVID-19 Data Dashboard a go-to resource for the public, news media, and Arizona leaders.

Starting in March, the frequency of reporting reflected on the ADHS COVID-19 Data Dashboard will shift to weekly. As a result, data on the state dashboard will update each Wednesday starting March 2, with the last daily update scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 26.

Starting March 2, YCCHS will send out a weekly update each Wednesday to replace its Monday and Friday updates. The COVID-19 pandemic is moving toward a new phase for which weekly reporting can provide the information everyone needs to make informed decisions.

Yavapai County reports 228 COVID-19 cases and eight deaths since Friday, Feb. 18, 2022, including 76 new cases and three deaths Tuesday.
