How we determine the current phase
On Thursday morning, we look at the higher of the 7-day average and the 14-day average of number of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in Sullivan County.
Any time that number is under 25 for three consecutive weeks, we progress to the next Phase.
Any time that number is over 25, we go to Phase 1.
