Downward trajectory (or near-zero incidence) of documented cases over a 14-day period. MET
Downward trajectory (or near-zero percent positive) of positive tests as a percentage of total tests over a 14-day period (flat or increasing volume of tests). MET 2
Jurisdiction inpatient & ICU beds <80%. Full Staff. No shortage in last week. PPE supplies adequate for >4 days. MET 1
Test availability such that percentage of positive tests is ≤20% for 14 days. Median time from test order to result is ≤4 days MET 2

 

Phase 2

Vulnerable individuals should continue to shelter in place. All individuals in public should social distance, and take precautionary measures. No groups larger than 50. Non-essential travel may resume. Businesses should continue to encourage telework when possible. Common areas should be closed. Special accommodations are strongly encouraged for vulnerable individuals. Schools may reopen. Visitation to LTC centers should be prohibited.
