As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, local leaders across the United States are working to bolster public health capacity and take some initial steps to reopen — protecting their communities from the disease and supporting economic recovery and growth. Below, COVID-Local provides decision-makers with easy-to-use metrics for a phased re-opening strategy. These metrics can be used to assess existing response, pinpoint areas for action, and make decisions for moving to the next phase of re-opening. The graphics in the Metrics Overview describe phases and the key metrics associated with each phase under a set of public health categories. The Scorecard (found on the Metrics Scorecard tab and available as a PDF download) can be used to self-assess community progress across all metrics for each Phase. The Assess Your Progress tab provides a series of graphics with phase-specific metrics. The interactive checklist can be used to show progress toward meeting thresholds for each phase.
