This risk gauge is calculated using these data sets:
  • The overall positivity rate of COVID testing in our jurisdiction
  • The weekly positivity rate of COVID testing in our jurisdiction
  • The trajectory of the local case counts (increasing or decreasing)
  • Health care system capacity
  • Availability of critical medical equipment
  • The identification of community clusters/community spread
  • Availability of COVID testing
  • And the ability to trace all the contacts of the positive cases within 24 hours
