Monitoring COVID-19

Keeping a pulse on the pandemic

With widespread access to vaccines and testing, available treatment options, and high levels of population immunity, the CDC has taken a new approach to monitoring and preventing COVID-19.  COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.
