CDC’s Stress & Coping Guide

Stages of COVID-19

Containment_____________

All actions taken under the containment phase seek to stop the spread of the disease.

______________________________________

When the community can no longer sustain contact tracing there will be a shift to mitigation. This shift is when there is sustained community spread.

Mitigation_______________

The goal of mitigation is to slow the spread of the disease and protect those at risk for severe illness and the health care and critical infrastructure work forces.

______________________________________

As cases increase, overloading of medical facilities is possible. This means having more patients than hospital beds and staff to care for patients.

Surge _________________

The increase in patient volumne that would otherwise severely challenge or exceed the present capacity of a facility. The goal is to prepare for this before a surge phase starts.

______________________________________

Ideally, after a surge, a community starts to recover. If COVID-19 is still present, but the load on medical facilities is reduced by a slower spread, the community will go back to the mitigation or containment phase.

Recovery

Recovery ______________

Since the impact of COVID-19 has lessened significantly, the communty begins to focus on social and economic recovery.

______________________________________

Reopening

(General Federal Guildelines Below)
Details on the draft of the Tuolumne program to reopen are here.

Phase One______________

As long if there is no evidence of increasing COVID-19 cases with a required robust testing program for coronavirus and antibody testing then elective surgeries can resume and gyms can open if they adhere to strict distancing and sanitation requirements.

______________________________________

Phase Two_______________

Still requires vulnerable populations to stay at home with no physical visits and for everyone to maintain maximum social distancing. Teleworking when possible and staggered shifts are still in place and common areas remain closed.

Gatherings must remain under 50 people. Non-essential travel can resume and schools and camps can reopen. Bars may operate with mitigation measures in place. Large venues such as dine-in restaurants and movie theaters may operate with mitigation measures.

______________________________________

Phase Three______________

Vulnerable individuals no longer have to stay at home but should practice social distancing and minimize their exposure to social settings where distancing may not be practical. Low-risk populations should minimize their time spent in crowded environments.

Employers can allow their workers to return to work in phase three.

Visits to senior care facilities and hospitals can resume, but those who interact with residents and patients must maintain high standards of hygiene. Large venues, like movie theaters and sports venues, can operate under limited physical distancing protocols. Bars can operate with increased standing room occupancy.
