Arizona reducing dashboard data on COVID-19 hospitalizations

Arizona is scaling back updates of COVID-19 hospitalization data displayed on the state’s coronavirus dashboard.

The announcement comes as signs point to a diminishing outbreak and Gov. Doug Ducey has ended the state of emergency that he declared over two years ago.

Department of Health Services Director Don Herrington said Thursday in a blog post that a surveillance order requiring hospitals to report specific COVID-19 data is no longer in effect.

Herrington said there won't be updates to graphs on hospital bed usage availability, specific metrics for COVID-19 and ventilator usage and availability.

COVID-19 hospitalizations have fallen dramatically since the omicron variant’s peak in January.
