cdc covid level info

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services supports the new Centers for Disease Control (CDC) metrics used to determine the severity of COVID-19 in communities. With widespread access to vaccines and testing, available treatment options, and high levels of population immunity, a new approach to monitoring and preventing COVID-19 is necessary. On February 25, 2022, the CDC released new COVID-19 Community Levels to help communities and individuals make decisions about prevention strategies and behaviors that more accurately reflect the goals of this new approach. COVID-19 Community Levels are determined using three key metrics:  
1. The number of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the past 7 days. 
2. New COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 population in the past 7 days.  
3. The average percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients in the past 7 days.
