You’re probably well aware of the COVID-19 risks when going to gatherings at the point. And maybe you’re okay with that risk or it’s something you’re not really thinking about. Either way, we’re here to introduce you to a cool tool that will help you determine if being in a group is really your best choice.

The COVID-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool “shows the risk level of attending an event, given the event size and location”. That means you can see your risk anywhere in the country. And if you’re still thinking about traveling during the holidays we highly recommend that you check this out first.

If you’re wondering, the way this data is calculated is with the assumption that at least 1 person is COVID-19 positive at an event in a county. And in order to be extra safe, this tool assumes that there are five times more cases than are being reported. Because due to many asymptomatic cases, it’s probably true.
