Beginning November 2, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) revised the COVID-19 daily dashboard. This revised dashboard will continue to provide critical information for the public’s understanding of the current and cumulative impact of the pandemic in Massachusetts, reflecting the metrics that are most useful to track on a daily basis. The Commonwealth already produces one of the most comprehensive public data reports on COVID-19 in the nation and includes detailed municipal-level, college and university, contact tracing, long-term care facilities, and, most recently, cluster data. This revised dashboard will help the public more easily access the Commonwealth’s growing amount of COVID-19 information as the Departments prepares to launch an interactive digital dashboard early next year. A key new data point presented in the dashboard is “Case Growth by Age Group,” which will help contextualize the impact of COVID on different age ranges over time. The Commonwealth is currently seeing a larger proportion of cases in younger people compared to earlier in the pandemic. The dashboard now includes the average turnaround time for COVID-19 test results to be reported to the Department, so contact tracing can begin. The dashboard also now reports the impact of university testing to greater clarify how this testing impacts the Commonwealth’s overall positivity rate and case numbers. The updated dashboard provides a more granular look into the daily positivity rate. Since August, the Commonwealth’s universities have been conducting at least 25,000 daily tests of students, faculty, and staff. While this testing has helped to control the spread of COVID on college campuses, it has also impacted the overall positivity rate. The dashboard will include three positivity rates: the overall state positivity rate, the positivity rate on college campuses, and the statewide positivity rateexcluding on-campus testing. Many existing data points, including testing, deaths, and hospitalization rates, have been reorganized to report on current numbers, trends over the past six weeks, and trends going back to March.
