Policy Snapshot

This site includes an interactive map that shows various data points, including county test positivity and total new cases per 100K: Users should scroll over to see the full table, but moderate transmission starts with 5% and then goes up.  So, when CDC says universal use of eye protection for resident care for facilities in communities with at least moderate-substantial transmission – that is essentially the same as having a facility in the >5% test positivity (or yellow and red counties).

More detail about how CDC defines “moderate” and “substantial” transmission can be found in the table on this webpage:
