Yesterday, the Coulee COVID-19 Compass changed from Severe Risk to High Risk.
The Compass provides detailed information on the status of the disease in the counties, as well as actions people can take to staunch the spread of the virus.
The tool gets its moniker from the fact that it features a graphic that looks like a compass, highlighting risk factors with colors in each quarter instead of pinpointing directions.
The Compass debuted in La Crosse County on May 29. The tool uses each county’s data to identify each county’s risk level for COVID-19. The risk levels will guide recommendations for each county’s residents. They also will allow everyone to see the data for neighboring counties and the region at a glance.
