Metrics

A region’s phase will be determined by the Department of Health (DOH) in response to four metric requirements.

To go forward from Phase 1 to Phase 2, regions must meet all four metrics:

  • Decreasing trend in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100K population (decrease >10%)

  • Decreasing trend in two-week rate new COVID-19 hospital admission rates per 100K population (decrease >10%)

  • ICU occupancy (total — COVID-19 and non-COVID-19) of less than 90%

  • COVID-19 test positivity rate of <10%

To remain in Phase 2, regions must meet at least 3 metrics:

  • Decreasing or flat trend in two-week rate of COVID-19 cases per 100K population

  • Decreasing or flat trend in two-week rate new COVID-19 hospital admission rates per 100K population

  • ICU occupancy (total — COVID-19 and non-COVID-19) of less than 90%

  • COVID-19 test positivity rate of <10%.

Regions that fail to meet two or more of the above metrics will be moved back to Phase 1.

The metrics for each region will be updated on the Risk Assessment Dashboard every Friday. Dependent on a region’s metrics, DOH will move into a new phase — forward or backward — the following Monday.

DOH and local health departments reserve the right to move a region outside of this timing, and additional phases may be added as the state’s COVID-19 situation changes with continued vaccine distribution and other changes in public health response.

As of 12/16/2020, COVID-19 cases with a positive antigen test will be added to the DOH and Risk Assessment dashboards, including case, hospitalization and death data. Positive antigen tests are listed as "probable" and positive molecular tests are "confirmed" cases.
