Montgomery County Tuesday COVID-19 Update Shows Improvement in Seven of Nine Metrics

Montgomery County established a number of public health criteria with associated goals to guide the reopening of businesses and services amidst the pandemic. The information is updated daily on the County’s COVID-19 Data Dashboard. The values or metrics are grouped into three categories including the number of cases and deaths, hospital capacity to handle current and potential surge cases, and testing capacity.

Each day during the current phase of reopening, the county indicates whether each metric was met or showed improvement. Tuesday there are two metrics that did not show improvement. They are the number of new cases of COVID-19 and the number of COVID-19 related emergency room visits.  (See the two metrics in red below.)
