Members of the Regional Control Rooms

Members of the Regional Control Rooms


Regional control rooms monitor regional metrics during the reopening process. The hospitalization rate, death rate, number of new hospitalizations, hospital bed capacity, ICU bed capacity, testing and contact tracing are monitored by the control rooms within each region during reopening. The regional control rooms alert the state if the region's metrics no longer meet the reopening guidelines and adjust the reopening plan for that region accordingly.
