Jackson County Health Department offers COVID risk calculator

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just extended its travel mask mandate through May. Philadelphia has reconstituted its mask mandate amid a spike in COVID-19 cases, and a number of high-profile Democrats have tested positive after attending a big dinner party.

Will we see another surge of COVID-19 in the United States in the weeks and months to come, or do you need a fourth COVID-19 vaccine?

It is sometimes difficult to determine what COVID-19 precautions to take and when to take them. That’s why the Jackson County Health Department said it created a community calculator.

The online tool, available on the Department of Health website, will display the current recommendations for an individual’s level of risk.

The website asks users to select their county. Then, determine from a list provided if you are considered high risk. Answer a few more questions and click the button to calculate your risk.

The calculator lists additional precautions, if any, that users can consider taking, as well as any additional recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The risk calculator is free and does not require any registration or account creation to obtain results.
