COVID-19 Response Guide for Public Health Officials



Available Now: covid-local.org








Visionlink's data science partner, Talus Analytics, has been working with the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) Bio team, the Center for Global Development, and the Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security to create an authoritative guide for COVID-19 response.

In their words:

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing significant disruptions to cities and local communities in the US and around the world. Successful suppression of COVID-19 in the United States will require urgent and decisive action by state, local and community leaders across the country.

The COVID-19 Frontline Guide is intended to provide these leaders and public officials with a web-based decision support tool and progress indicators to assist in informed decision-making on how to combat COVID-19 in their jurisdictions. This guide provides a framework to help local leaders establish strategies to fight the outbreak, both by reducing transmission of the disease and by supporting their communities effectively.

The Guide is a joint project of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) Bio team, the Center for Global Development, and the Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security, in collaboration with Talus Analytics."


You can access the guide here.

COVID-19 Infection & Quarantine Tracker


Community Infection & Quarantine Tracker Available Now


Visionlink announces the COVID-19 Infection and Quarantine Tracker for 2-1-1s, I&R Centers, Aging Agencies, Crisis Lines and Disaster Agencies. 

While the CDC focuses on policy and testing certifications, and as local hospitals prepare, local communities and their public health officials need access to accurate, daily information about the numbers of residents concerned about the virus, those you are symptomatic, and those who are in self-imposed or officially mandated quarantines.

Because the virus has so many undefined behaviors, daily status and symptom checks are critical for local and state response planning. 

The tracker is complete with on-line resources, scheduled reports, and phone or text surveys for status and symptoms. 

The Tracker is immediately available. Download the product sheet here
