Q & A - How does the warning week and movement week work, exactly?
One more question on how risk levels are determined and then when do we hear about it? James
Yep, it's seems like a serious scientific method, so here's the facts as I know them, as simple as possible!
County risk levels run on a two-week cycle. The first week is a movement week and the second week is a warning week. On movement weeks, data are updated on Monday and counties are notified of any change in risk level; changes go into effect on the Friday of a movement week. OHA continues to monitor these metrics during warning weeks, however, and provides an update on case counts, rates, and percent positivity.
