The Kansas City Region COVID-19 Data Hub is shifting to weekday-only reporting and is eliminating Saturday, Sunday, and holiday updates. The change will begin the weekend of April 2.
Rationale: A majority of the jurisdictions that the hub collects its data from are no longer reporting on weekends or holidays. Preliminary and incomplete data over non-reporting periods can appear misleadingly low without the context and understanding of the impacts of incomplete reporting on daily numbers.
Impacts: Visibility on emerging data will be limited over the weekend and holidays. Updates the following day will include any reporting that occurred over the non-reporting period.
