Release Notes

Began as a passion side project to centralize BC's COVID-19 Public Exposure Information under one website. The project grew to include Community ExposureFacilities OutbreakFlight Exposure, and School Exposure.

The vision of the website is to 

  • be the go-to and trusted source of COVID-19 exposure information for the public
  • be an archive of COVID-19 exposure/outbreak event data with the ability to provide a "point-of-time" snapshot
  • present trends and analytics with the exposure data for the public
  • allow other web applications to access the data via data formats like JSON 
  • allow for submission of exposure events that might not have been reported by Public Health

Data sources

Data is manually added to the website based on credible sources from various news media outlets.
