Valdez Case Count Dashboard

Valdez Case Count 02.25.2021

02.25.2021, 2:45 p.m. - Valdez Case Count Dashboard Update


Reported today: One new resident case. Adult with symptoms. Transmission source under investigation. 

Important Notes About the Valdez Case Count Dashboard

Our local COVID-19 case count data is updated upon notification from Public Health of new cases, recoveries, hospitalizations, or deaths. Mirroring the model established by the Alaska Department of Health & Social Services, the local case count dashboard is now updated by noon covering case count changes for the previous calendar day. If there are no case count changes, no update to the dashboard is made. Changes to local case counts occurring on holidays or weekends are reported on the dashboard the following business day. 

There is often a data entry delay between our local real-time case count updates and what is then reported on the statewide DHSS Alaska Coronavirus Response Hub data dashboard.

Local Weekly Summary News Release

Starting in early December 2020, a “Valdez Weekly Summary” news release is now issued on Friday afternoons covering case counts and trends for the previous week, details about contact/source investigations, recommended community mitigation measures, vaccine updates, and other important information. This summary release replaces daily news releases previously issued for new cases.
