The CDC COVID-19 Community Levels map measures the impact of COVID-19 illness on health and healthcare systems.
To determine the COVID-19 Community Level, the CDC looks at a combination of three metrics – new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past 7 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 7 data. Using these data, the COVID-19 community level is classified as low, medium, or high. More information can be found at the link below:
