In a press release sent out today, Chemung County Executive Christopher Moss announced an expanded use for the county’s COVID-19 dashboard, once used to track the number of positive cases in the county during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Moss, the COVID-19 dashboard was developed as a tool to provide real time updates to the public about cases in Chemung County. Moss says that while it has been a great resource to report current information to county residents, as the focus of public health evolves, so too with the dashboard as well.

On a weekly basis, the dashboard will continue to report information about COVID-19 as well as other public health concerns. These would include information about concerns such as sexually transmitted diseases, tick-borne illnesses, as well as food borne illness. In addition, the dashboard will highlight public health programs such as the county’s Lead Poisoning Prevention program and different public health clinics.
Moss says that the expanded dashboard will go live on June 26th. Those wishing to access the dashboard can go to www.ChemungCounty.gov. once there, at the top the screen hover over the “Government” option. Then, under the “Departments P-Y” heading, select “Public health”. On the left panel of the screen, click on the “COVID-19 Updates and Information” and then select the “Covid-19 Dashboard.” This will take you to a separate website where the dashboard is located.
