#VA communities w >=moderate transmission

Healthy Communities Keep Virginia Safe Tournament

Question

VDH classifies community transmission of COVID-19 into four levels:

  • Low: 7-day avg of cases per 100k is 0-9; 7-day avg % positivity is <5%
  • Moderate: 7-day avg of cases per 100k is 10-49; 7-day avg % positivity is 5.0%-7.9%
  • Substantial: 7-day avg of cases per 100k is 50-99; 7-day avg % positivity is 8.0%-9.9%
  • High: 7-day avg of cases per 100k is >=100; 7-day avg % positivity is >=10%

If the two indicators suggest different levels, the actions corresponding to the higher threshold should be chosen.

As of 15 November, 131 of Virginia’s 133 communities experienced moderate or higher levels of community transmission for the week ending 13 November.

How many of Virginia's 133 communities will be experiencing moderate or higher levels of community transmission as of 7 March 2022?

This will resolve as the number of communities experiencing moderate, substantial, or high levels of community transmission according to the VDH “Level of Community Transmission” dashboard as of the 7 March 2022 update for the week ending 5 March 2022.
