Richmond Metro Area COVID dashboard
A note on this dashboard: recently the CDC has changed the metrics by which it deems an area to be Low, Medium, or High community level, focusing not on actual case numbers, but on hospitalizations. This means that this dashboard can show our region as "low" even when case counts would have been considered high under previous metrics.
You can also assume the case counts reflected below are a drastic under-count due to the prevalence of at-home testis, which are not included in state data.
TLDR: The actual level of cases and transmissions in our area is still elevated.
Because partnered dancing is a close-contact, high-risk activity, we would need to see the top number on this dashboard below 70 to begin relaxing our studio mask policy.
