CovidActNow.org is the only tool we could find which gives a clear answer regarding regional risk, but it currently only covers the United States. We're actively trying to find similar tools for regions outside of the US, so contact us if you know of one.
In the meantime, you can estimate your region’s current risk level using the following rubric:
|Case Growth||WHO Preparedness Standards|
|Low||Declining||Meets or exceeds|
For a couple of reasons:
Eating food, in and of itself, does not appear to be a problem; removing one's mask is the problem, which has to be done in order to eat. If people are going to be eating at the event, the answer to the question about mask-wearing should be "none" or "some", which will raise the event's overall score.
The current formula triangulates distancing via three questions:
We chose this route rather than asking about distancing directly because studies suggest self-reporting is often, shall we say, overly optimistic.
Further, we are working on adding inputs for precise numbers on space and crowd size. For example, if you are a shop owner and you know the square footage of your store, you can enter that and how many folks you are letting in at a time in order to guage if minimum distancing is possible.
