COVID-19: Brookings Thresholds

UPDATED: November 28, 2020

  1. Is the epidemic controlled? No, although Rt has been less than 1.0 in Brookings and South Dakota for the last 8 days.
  2. Is the health system able to cope with a resurgence of COVID-19 cases that may arise after adapting some measures? Based on current census, Brookings Health System feels they can handle the lowest of the anticipated numbers (n = 8). However, staffing will be challenged, thereby limiting the ability to sustain care for the long-term, with the highest anticipated number (n = 29).
  3. Is the public health surveillance system able to detect and manage the cases and their contacts, and identify a resurgence of cases in Brookings?
    a. Mitigation Level: No, almost twice as much testing is needed for Brookings County and about 5 times more testing is needed for South Dakota.
    b. Suppression Level: No, test positivity is 14%-16%, which is above the 3% test positivity needed for suppression.
    c. Approximate Time to Receive Test Results: 1 to 3 days
