An online dashboard has been created to make information on Acadiana COVID cases, testing and vaccinations easier to find.

The Acadiana Planning Commission announced the creation of the Acadiana COVID Dashboard on Tuesday, February 2.

Information on the dashboard will cover the seven-parish Acadiana region.

The public will be able to access the online dashboard starting on the afternoon of February 3 at planacadiana.org/COVID.

“APC, along with our local leaders and with Dr. Stefanski’s office, is working to get Acadiana to the other side of this pandemic as soon as possible. Our businesses, our schools and especially our citizens need to be finished with COVID.” says Monique Boulet, CEO at Acadiana Planning Commission (APC). “The only way to get there is to get correct information and to get the vaccine to as many people as will take it. We are hoping this tool is helpful in that effort.”

The dashboard was created in coordination with Acadiana and state leaders, Parish Presidents, mayors, medical professionals and the LDH Region 4 Medical Director Dr. Tina Stefanski.

The Acadiana COVID-19 Dashboard will provide information relating to:

  • COVID Counts for the State and by Parish for Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, and Vermilion Parishes.
  • COVID Test Center Calendar and list for the Acadiana Parishes.
  • COVID Find a Test Center map for the Acadiana Parishes.
  • Vaccine information and locations by Parish list and map.
  • OneAcadiana’s COVID Business Resources.

“Our regional COVID-19 calls have been critical to understanding what COVID information is needed by the people. By developing this tool, we can get important information out to the public, faster.” says M. Larry Richard, Iberia Parish President.
