Roadmap to Recovery Metrics:

Counties are individually evaluated every three weeks. The evaluations occur on Mondays with any phase changes taking effect on Friday. The next evaluation is scheduled for May 18, 2021.

In addition to being individually evaluated, large and small counties have different sets of criteria. A small county is defined as a county with a population of less than 50,000.

Counties must meet at least one of the county-based metric thresholds in a given phase in order to remain in that phase. Counties that no longer meet both metrics will move back one phase. Counties that meet both county-based metrics of a higher level phase can move forward one phase.
