Reader inquiry leads to enlightenment
We had an inquiry from one of our readers about accessing the data from the Health Department regarding COVID deaths so we reached out to Jeanine Taylor from DHD#10
She kindly offered to guide us through the process of obtaining the desired information adding, “We sent out press releases for the first two deaths in each county like other departments throughout the state did. We don’t offer information beyond age group and gender.”.
It was explained to Ms. Taylor that given this writer’s personal struggle with complex procedures any instructions would likely need to be as uncomplicated as possible. She assured me of the relative simplicity of the process.
And she was indeed correct.
If one goes to the DHD#10 COVID site
One will see the Dashboard.
There are three categories
When you click on Newaygo County in any of the three categories, the data reverts to Newaygo County figures only.
The site itself is a wealth of info on the pandemic.
Thank you Ms. Taylor and thank you DHD#10 for all your work in helping the communities in our region deal with this lingering pandemic.
