This metric (community transmission) uses two indicators for categorization:
1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 7 days and
2. Percentage of positive diagnostic and screening nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT) during the last 7 days.
As an example CUMBERLAND County:
Current 7-days is Mon Apr 18 2022 - Sun Apr 24 2022 for case rate and
Sat Apr 16 2022 - Fri Apr 22 2022 for percent positivity
Transmission level - HIGH
Factors used to determine rate:
1) Case Rate = 170.85 per 100,000 (High Transmission Range)
2) Percent Positivity = 6.03 (Moderate Transmission Range)
If the two indications above are in different transmission levels like Cumberland County the HIGHER Transmission level is selected for that county.
