METRICS

The state created a set of metrics for determining when regions should move between Phase 1 and Phase 2. These metrics will be tracked at the state level. The state Department of Health launched a new dashboard displaying these metrics by region.

  • Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population;
  • Decreasing trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100K population;
  • Average 7-day percent occupancy of ICU staffed beds less than 90%; and,
  • 7-day percent positivity of COVID-19 tests less than 10%

In order to remain in Phase 2, a region must continue meeting at least three of these four metrics.

  • Decreasing or flat trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population;
