(JEFFERSON CITY, MO) – Today, Governor Mike Parson announced that the state of Missouri has expanded its COVID-19 dashboards. The new dashboards, now located on the Show Me Strong website, provide Missourians with multiple charts, maps, and measures about COVID-19 and its impact in the state. “We are committed to giving Missourians the most accurate, up-to-date information as possible regarding COVID-19 in our state,” Governor Parson said. “With easy access to information through the dashboards, every citizen can contribute to our Show Me Strong Recovery Plan.” Deliberate and data-driven, Missouri’s Show Me Strong Recovery Plan rests on four essential pillars – testing, PPE, hospital capacity, and data. The expanded dashboards build on the data pillar and will help citizens, community leaders, and businesses across the state make decisions regarding COVID-19 in their communities going forward. “Since the start of the COVID-19 challenge, we have been committed to communicating the best possible information to our citizens every day,” said Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Director Dr. Randall Williams. “These dashboards are the next step in our efforts to get better every day for our citizens.”The state’s cross-governmental COVID-19 Fusion Cell helped coordinate development of the dashboards, which include data from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Social Services, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, among others. Missouri also coordinated with other stakeholders across the state in creating the newest version of the dashboards.
