🟠 𝗧𝗶𝗽𝘁𝗼𝗻’𝘀 𝗛𝗚𝗛𝗜/𝗕𝗦𝗣𝗛 𝗥𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹: 𝗢𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝗭𝗼𝗻𝗲 (𝟭𝟱.𝟱/𝟭𝟬𝟬𝗞)
Tipton is in the orange zone on the Harvard Global Health Initiative/Brown School of Public Health “Path to Zero” Risk Level Dashboard for Saturday’s data (they’re two days behind). Our rate is 15.5/100K (it was 21.8 Friday).
For comparison, Shelby Co. is at 11.1/100K and has been decreasing.
🟠 𝗧𝗡 𝗛𝗚𝗛𝗜/𝗕𝗦𝗣𝗛 𝗥𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹: 𝗢𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝗭𝗼𝗻𝗲 (𝟭𝟴.𝟯/𝟭𝟬𝟬𝗞)
Tennessee as a whole is in the HGHI/BSPH orange zone and the risk level is 18.3 (25 is the red zone; we were at 19.9 Friday). We rank 17th in the nation today with a lot of states ahead of us in the red zone. This is the lowest Tennessee has ranked.
The orange zone shows accelerated spread (10-24 cases/100K people) where stay-at-home orders and/or rigorous test and trace programs are advised. The red zone, HGHI/BSPH suggests, should follow stay-at-home orders.
🟡 𝗪𝗵𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗛𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗧𝗮𝘀𝗸 𝗙𝗼𝗿𝗰𝗲 𝗥𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹: 𝗬𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄
We are in the White House Task Force’s yellow zone which means we had both new cases between 10-100 per 100,000 population, and a diagnostic test positive result between 5-10%, or one of those two conditions and one condition qualifying as being in the Red Zone.
🟡 𝗠𝗲𝗮𝗻 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲: 𝗬𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄 𝗭𝗼𝗻𝗲 (𝟭.𝟬𝟰)
Our mean transmission rate is 1.04 , according to the Tennessee State Data Center. The yellow zone is the third level of five (with five being the worst). Shelby County is in the green zone at .95 as are all of our neighboring counties.
