Know Your COVID-19 Community Level
COVID-19 Community Levels are a 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. The community is urged to take precautions to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in their area.
The case data that CDC Data Tracker uses is imported from the Texas Department of State Health Services COVID-19 Texas Dashboard, and based on the case and test activity will assign a level of risk of transmission. The WCCHD dashboard will no longer be referenced.
The CDC uses the 7-day rolling sum of all newly reported cases, including probable and confirmed cases, to determine the Case Rate per 100,000 population. WCCHD uses the 7-day rolling average of new confirmed cases to determine the Incidence Rate per 100,000 population.
