These charts were created with the latest COVID-19 data from Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health, LMH Health, Lawrence Public Schools and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. They’ll show the latest data whenever we update them, regardless of whether we publish a new article.

Last status update: Dec. 29, 2021

The charts are interactive, so you can show and hide parts of the data to get a better sense of what various pieces mean, in some cases, or tap on a data point to see more numbers. Some of them appear a little funky on mobile devices; there are links below the charts to view them on a full page of their own, and turning your phone sideways may help to see them better, too.

The Times has compiled the data we thought would be the most helpful and beneficial for readers to access at a glance. If there are any other charts you’d like to see us create or other resources you’d like us to add, please reach out by emailing us at hello (at) lawrencekstimes (dot) com.

Note: The Kansas Department of Health and Environment performs genetic testing to sequence the variants of a tiny sample — generally about 1% to 2% — of all positive COVID-19 tests statewide. Numbers shown here are variants that KDHE has confirmed through testing of Douglas County samples throughout the pandemic. The pie charts grow in size proportionate to the number of samples sequenced; the charts over time show how different variants have spread.

Note, in the interest of transparency: Two of these charts, the totals of new and active cases in Douglas County and the total number of inpatients hospitalized at LMH Health, were updated Jan. 7, 2022 to include data going back to near the beginning of the pandemic.
