In concert with Microsoft, the state Health Department has launched an online COVID-19 data dashboard that outlines numerous metrics associated with the illness by county.

The website includes data on infections, hospitalizations and deaths caused by the coronavirus. It also cautions the user about duplicate or incomplete information and advises that the Epidemiologic Curves tab, which is updated daily, is the most accurate representation of COVID activity in Washington State.

The department updates much of the overall dashboard every Monday through Saturday with exceptions for federal holidays. Deaths are updated only on weekdays while vaccination data is updated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
