The CDC's COVID-19 Community Level indicators provide a broad framework for jurisdictions to use and adapt as needed based on local needs. Updated by the CDC weekly, the purpose of the Community Level framework is to provide guidance on recommendations for public health interventions and whether prevention strategies should be increased or relaxed. Due to the nature of how this is calculated, community levels can swing from low to high in a short amount of time, and the public should consider the larger picture in addition to the guidance of the Community Levels. At all levels (low, medium, or high), people can wear a mask and take additional precautions based on personal preference, informed by their personal level of risk. Staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccine is recommended regardless of the risk level.

CDC looks at the 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 days — to determine the COVID-19 community level. New COVID-19 admissions and the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied represent the current potential for strain on the health system. Data on new cases acts as an early warning indicator of potential increases in health system strain in the event of a COVID-19 surge.
