* Manitowoc County Health Department defines "recovered" as being 30 days since the individual tested positive, and has not resulted in death.
Here are some basic navigational items about the dashboard:
· When you hover over any section of the dashboard, you’ll see a circle appear with four arrows pointing outward., which looks like this:
· When you click on that circle, that panel will open full screen so you can see and navigate it better
· When you’re finished with that panel, you can click on that same circle (but with the arrows pointing inward), and the panel will go back to being minimal
· You can click on any one of the yellow icons to learn more, filter the information, or see it in a different format
· On the map to the right, you can click on any county and see their positive cases, negative cases, and number of deaths due to COVID-19
· The health facts and population data you see is for all of Manitowoc County, not for those who have confirmed cases of COVID-19
· Local information and State information for our area are updated in different cadences. When viewing this dashboard, there is a lag of approximately 24 hours; meaning local data might be slightly higher than the dashboard data. They’re both accurate. Each is just a snapshot in time.
Keep this in mind when looking at this tool:
· The focus should be on staying at home, only going to public places when necessary, social distancing when in contact with others, and regular handwashing. Although this dashboard provides you with a lot of data and numbers, the focus shouldn’t necessarily be on the numbers alone. The numbers are there to tell us we’re heading in the right direction.
