Tracking the Curve: Daily updates on local COVID-19 developments
(KWQC) - As COVID-19 continues to impact the United States and the world, TV6 is continuing to track the curve as new information becomes available locally, statewide, and nationally.
In February 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced new metrics to determine a community’s level of COVID-19 risk.
The CDC now looks at three metrics: New COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past seven days; the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients; and total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the past seven days.
COVID-19 community level is now classified as low, medium, or high, according to the CDC.
