New Interactive Map Projects COVID-19 Infection Risk Based on Location, Size of Gathering

Researchers at Georgia Tech University have released a new COVID-19 Risk Assessment Planning Tool to gauge the coronavirus infection dangers associated with attending public gatherings across the country. The interactive website was designed to help policymakers, event planners and individuals determine the risks associated with group events throughout the United States and around the world.

To use the tool, go to this link. Move the slider on the left side of the page to set the size of the group you might encounter. You can then select a specific location to determine your statistical chance of coming into contact with a person who is COVID-19 positive. 

For example, if you were planning to go to a 25 person event in Chicago, your risk would be about 71 percent. That same risk for an event the same size drops to 31 percent in Portland, Oregon.  

The Los Angeles Times published an article about the tool. It can be found here.

The webpage itself can be found at this link. 

We have also added this resource to AMP’s main COVID-19 resources page.
