A new dial for Protect Our Neighbors, Safer at Home, and Stay at Home.
During this pandemic, the State is working to make life as sustainable as possible, while ensuring we do not surpass our public health and health care capacities. Carefully maintaining the effective reproductive or R number at or below 1 helps prevent the exponential spread of the COVID-19 virus. Different levels of “openness” that are standardized at the county level will help maintain this delicate balance. This new framework recognizes unique local circumstances and uses an intuitive dial to visualize a community’s success in containing the spread of COVID-19. By increasing simplicity and predictability, we can give local communities another tool to make life amidst the pandemic more sustainable until we have a major breakthrough in testing, treatments, or a vaccine.This dial goes into effect Tuesday, September 15.
