HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — It's been discussed for weeks, but on Monday Hillsborough County announced the launch of its own COVID-19 tracking dashboard.

The online tool aggregates coronavirus data specific to the county like testing numbers, confirmed cases and hospitalizations. Each section has interactive charts as well as percentages for the positivity rate and moving averages.

"The dashboard utilizes the most up-to-date data available in Hillsborough County," the county said in a release. "Most of the numbers are updated twice daily. The data related to coronavirus testing is updated once each week."

Hillsborough said the data is collected from the Florida Department of Health, Tampa General Hospital Data Exchange, the United States Census Bureau and the Florida Office of Economic Development.
