COVID-19 Response Plan
The response plan must be staged, localized by county based on official, publicly available, vetted scientific data.
The Tennessee Department of Health County Data Snapshot will be our primary source when filtered for Grainger, Hamblen, and Jefferson Counties.
The Harvard Global Health Institute and Brown School of Public Health COVID Risk Levels Dashboard will be our secondary source when filtered for Grainger, Hamblen, and Jefferson Counties.
The stages in our plan aim to be proportional to the exponential growth of COVID-19.
We will continue to live stream during all stages.
Communication of changes between stages will be shared via OneCallNow.
