La Crosse County Health Department has launched the Coulee COVID-19 Compass which provides risk assessment using 10 data points in three categories (Epidemiology Status- what the disease is doing, Healthcare Capacity, and Public Health Capacity). These data move the Compass needle between four risk levels (Severe, High, Moderate, Low) and guide recommendations for businesses and individuals. As the pandemic continues, La Crosse County Health Department anticipates changes to the risk level over time. It is expected that the needle will move responsively between lower and higher risk levels as our community experiences waves of the virus. This will occur until a vaccine or treatment is widely available. The Compass is updated weekly on Wednesdays at noon.
