Parkway Schools Community Health Dashboard
Number of New Cases - St. Louis County
A seven-day moving average of new daily cases per 100,000 is used to account for daily fluctuations that may occur in the data, such as fewer cases being reported on weekends. The intent is to give a more representative view of the ongoing COVID-19 new case rate trends.
- Red: 25+ cases per 100,000
- Orange: 10-24 cases per 100,000
- Yellow: 1-9 cases per 100,000
- Green: Less than 1 case per 100,000
Transmission Rate - St. Louis County
Viral transmission represents the average number of people that one person with COVID-19 is likely to infect. The risk is less when community transmission rates are low.
The target is 1.0 or less. Above 1.0 means increasing the spread and under 1.0 means reducing the spread of the virus.
Test Positivity Rate - St. Louis County
The percent positive is exactly what it sounds like: the percentage of all coronavirus tests performed that are positive. When the test positivity rate is low, it is an indication that there is sufficient testing happening to help curtail the spread of the virus in the community. If the positivity rate is too high, that may indicate that the community is only testing the sickest individuals.
- Red: more than 10 percent positive tests
- Yellow: less than 10 percent and more than five percent positive tests
- Green: less than five percent positive tests
