Changes In COVID Reporting
May 22, 2023 10:14AM CDT
The end of the federal COVID public health emergency on May 11, caused changes to local data reports.
COVID isn’t over but the emergency declaration about COVID data, reporting, and surveillance is.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer requires information from hospitals or laboratory tests.
Amarillo Public Health will discontinue the weekly COVID report card but will continue to protect the health and well-being of residents.
The CDC recommends staying updated with vaccinations while they are free and accessible.
The latest vaccine is free Monday through Thursday with no appointment at Amarillo Public Health.
Upcoming mobile vaccine clinics are as follows:
- 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 23 at the Travis 6th Grade Campus, 2801 NE 24th Ave.
- 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 24 at the Allen 6th Grade Campus, 700 N Lincoln St.
