As our staff shifts priority to COVID-19 vaccination response and assisting with weekly clinics, we want to still be able to share the most real-time data with the public. However, without daily contact with infected individuals anymore, the release of active cases along with current hospitalizations would not be considered accurate nor real-time. For this reason, our Epi Team provides a Trends Report every Friday to allow the public to see shifts in infection direction based on a moving average of cases reported to us. We understand this new reporting approach is not well-received, but it is the best, most accurate information we can give as our staffing and resources are allocated in a different direction of public health protection. 

Because the Delaware Public Health District strives to provide the most accurate, transparent data possible to the public, we are adjusting our reporting to Vaccine Breakdown Report updated each Monday at 1:30pm, Case Numbers updated each Wednesday at 1:30pm and COVID-19 Trends Report updated each Friday at 1:30pm. This new schedule gives our epidemiologists time to conduct quality assurance with our data to make sure it is the most accurate prior to release.  
Portions of Delaware County are annexed to Columbus Public Health and Franklin County Public Health based on tax jurisdiction, including Dublin, Washington Township, Columbus and Westerville. If a resident would test positive for COVID-19 in one of those jurisdictions, then the public health department in Columbus or Franklin County would handle that case, even if they reside in Delaware County.
