The COVID-19 pandemic launched a worldwide effort to collect, process, and communicate public health data at unprecedented scales, and a host of visualization capabilities have been launched and maintained to meet the need for presenting data in ways that the general public can understand. This paper presents a selection of visualizations developed in support of the United States National COVID-19 Response, describes the unique set of constraints and challenges of operational visualization in this context, and reflects on ways the visualization community might be able to support public health operations moving forward.
