It details the risk levels of various normal school activities (riding the bus, eating lunch in the cafeteria, football practice, etc.).

We created this as a public service, so please feel free to tweet, post, email, print, or hang this infographic on your refrigerator. To download the infographic for your own use, click here or here for the Spanish K-12 index.

<![CDATA[COVID-19 Activity Risk Levels]]> http://www.ezekielemanuel.com/writing/all-articles/2020/06/30/covid-19-activity-risk-levels With no clear direction from the federal government on how to handle the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been hard to decide what’s safe and unsafe as states begin to open up. There's no right answer; you just need to know the risks and how much risk you're willing to take. That's why Professor Saskia Popescu, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the University of Arizona, Dr. James P. Phillips, MD, the Chief of Disaster Medicine at GWU Emergency Medicine, and I developed a COVID-19 Risk Index to help you do this, based on four key factors:


1) Enclosed space

2) Duration of interaction

3) Crowds

4) Forceful exhalation   


Again, we hope this Risk Index is helpful to you as you decide what you are comfortable doing as these activities become available. We created this as a public service, so please feel free to tweet, post, e-mail, and print and hang this on your refrigerator or around your workplace. You can download the infographic here, or here for the Spanish language version

Other available translations:

Portuguese risk index

French risk index

Turkish risk index
