Community COVID-19 information & resources

August 27, 2020

Dear TWS Community,

Here are our benchmarks for returning to campus as published July 27:

  1. When Arizona’s positivity rate of testing returns to the internationally recommended rate of 5% or lower for 14 consecutive days.  This data is explained and presented daily by the team at Johns Hopkins, as well as on AZDHS’s Data Dashboard.


  2. Using the Risk Assessment Tool developed by Georgia Tech University, which also uses data mined by the Covid Tracking Project, when the red line (top of the curve, representing 20 times the reported incidence of disease) is below the 25% estimated mark for a group of 10-25 people. Below are daily graphs of risk in Arizona.

Here are a number of useful online resources to aid in managing the moment we’re in – among them a new link for Pima County Testing centers, offering free tests by appointment at three locations, with a promised 48 hour turnaround.
