Roadmap to Recovery Metrics:

The new Washington State COVID-19 - reopening dashboard

This dashboard provides an overview of the metrics used in Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery which uses a regional approach for the phased reopening plan. The metrics and corresponding thresholds presented here help determine if it is safe for a region to enter a new phase of reopening. 

Four metrics are presented on this dashboard:

  1. Trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population;
  2. Trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100K population;
  3. Average 7-day percent occupancy of ICU staffed beds; and
  4. 7-day percent positive of COVID-19 tests.

The metrics and phases are updated every Friday.

The metrics and data used in the dashboards are available at the region and county levels in the downloadable Excel files. One file includes these metrics calculated for time periods since the launch of Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery and the other includes metrics calculated with available data for time periods prior to the launch. The Excel files include county-level data for the following metrics: Trend in 14-day rate of new COVID-19 cases per 100K population and 7-day percent positive of COVID-19 tests.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard

The data in the previous COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard will continue to be updated Monday-Friday. Current phases and reopening metrics are available in the Roadmap to Recovery Dashboard.

Dependent on the measure, data may be available at a county or regional level. When choosing a particular filter, that value will apply as you move from measure to measure. Change your view by clicking the menu on the left.

Friday, January 22, 2021: Total case counts may include up to 200 duplicates. Negative test results data from November 21-30, 2020, and January 5 through today are incomplete. Thus, negative test results, testing rate and percent positivity (Testing Capacity tab), and case counts should be interpreted with caution. The COVID-19 Disease Activity tab is the most accurate representation of COVID activity and is updated daily as new cases are identified and duplicates are resolved.

Technical notes

Dashboard update schedule

DOH updates the Risk Assessment dashboard every Monday-Friday, with the exception of federal and state holidays (e.g., December 25, January 1).

Testing

DOH changed the methodology for reporting out testing results. Effective of August 25, 2020, total number of tests will be reported on the data dashboard instead of the total individuals who were tested. New positive and negative test counts include all molecular tests including PCR by specimen collection date among individuals who have not previously tested positive. Multiple test results from the same day are counted only once and repeat tests on an individual are excluded after the first positive result. This methodology has been applied to the entire 2020-time frame covered in the dashboard. The testing trends remain largely the same.

With the change in methods, we also added a new Daily Testing Rate metric. This measure helps us understand the relative testing levels and our ability to detect cases. Details on this metric can be found under Learn More on the Testing Capacity tab. This metric will replace the current, “Individuals tested per new case” on the dashboard.

Time delays and lags

Minor time delays in the collection of laboratory testing data, confirming cases, hospitalizations, and deaths occur regularly due to processing and reporting variation between data sources. This variation is due to differences in individual actions, laboratory capacities, and case confirmation and reporting processes.

After analyzing time lags between steps, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) increased the period of incomplete reporting for most metrics to 10 days to ensure that 90% of data are accounted for in our posted numbers. For each metric shown on a time trend, the incomplete data period is shown in light gray. We provide a Learn More link with more detail on the period of incomplete data.

Cases

Effective December 16, 2020, case, hospitalization, and death counts include both confirmed and probable cases. Confirmed cases are those where individuals had a positive molecular test result for COVID-19. Probable cases are those where individuals had a positive antigen test result for COVID-19, but no positive molecular test result. Our dashboard includes antigen test results dating back to June 2020, when they were first reported in Washington.
