COVID-19 Community Levels and Prevention Strategies
On March 11, 2022, the Fishers Health Department adopted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 Community Levels and COVID-19 Prevention Strategies for individual- and household-level prevention behaviors and community-level prevention strategies. Briefly, COVID-19 community levels use three important metrics to assess current and future potential impact of COVID-19 on individuals, communities, and the healthcare system, representing a shift from pandemic emergency response to endemic minimization of severe COVID-19 on individuals' health and burden on healthcare systems. Visit the CDC's COVID-19 Community Levels and Prevention Strategies website for detailed information.
