Alabama Public Health: Color-coded system guides COVID-19 reopening recommendations

Alabama Public Health: Color-coded system guides COVID-19 reopening recommendations. “Calculation for each county’s risk of COVID-19 spread in the community is based on the increasing or decreasing trend in the number of new cases each day. The number of new cases each day is determined with a rolling 3-day average to account for fluctuations in reporting. The main indicator for decreasing risk of COVID-19 spread in the community is the number of days the county has experienced a downward trend of new cases. Several factors can influence a county’s number of new COVID-19 cases, so other factors are examined to additionally inform the level of a county. A detailed explanation of how the overall risk level is determined is located on the COVID-19 Risk Indicator Dashboard. A color-coded state map displays four risk levels: very high, high, moderate and low indicated in red, orange, yellow and green, respectively.”
