These metrics can be used to assess existing response, pinpoint areas for action, and make decisions for moving to the next phase of re-opening. The graphics in the Metrics Overview describe phases and the key metrics associated with each phase under a set of public health categories.

COVID-Local and the Frontline Guide are a joint project of the Global Biological Policy Program at the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), the Center for Global Development, and the Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security, in collaboration with Talus Analytics. The team is comprised of experienced experts in disease outbreak as well as former public health officials, and the tools were developed in response to calls from local governments for more information on how to protect their communities.
