COVID-19: Brookings Thresholds

UPDATED: January 21, 2021

  1. Is the epidemic controlled? No. Rt was above 1.0 for 6 of the last 14 days and spread remains substantial.
  2. Is the health system able to cope with a resurgence of COVID-19 cases that may arise after adapting some measures? Based on current census, Brookings Health System feels they can handle the lowest of the anticipated numbers (n = 5). However, staffing will be challenged, thereby limiting the ability to sustain care for the long-term, with the highest anticipated number (n = 15).
  3. Is the public health surveillance system able to detect and manage the cases and their contacts, and identify a resurgence of cases in Brookings?
    a. Mitigation Level: No, about 2-3 times more testing is needed for Brookings County.
    b. Suppression Level: No, test positivity is 11%-30%, which is above the 3% test positivity needed for suppression.
    c. Approximate Time to Receive Test Results: 1 to 2 days
