COVID-19 Alert Levels System

2021-10-23

The community quarantine classifications that people have grown familiar with has changed in favor of Alert Levels which is based on the virus transmission rate, hospital bed utilization rate, and intensive care utilization rate in a city or municipality.

 

Only two community quarantine classifications remain: enhanced community quarantine and general community quarantine, where the new Alert Levels will come into play.

 

Instead of imposing region-wide lockdowns, the government will now impose granular lockdowns, a micro-level quarantine for areas identified as “critical zones” by the local government unit (LGU) which may be declared regardless of Alert Level.

 

COVID-19 Alert Levels System – refers to the new Community Quarantine Classifications for dealing with COVID-19 covering entire cities and/or municipalities; aimed to manage and minimize the risk of the disease through System Indicators, Triggers and Thresholds determined by the IATF Sub-Technical Working Group on Data Analytics to specify the public health and social measures to be taken in relation to the COVID-19 response, as may be updated based on new scientific knowledge, information about the effectiveness of control measures in the country and overseas, and its application.

Alert Level 1 – refers to areas wherein case transmission is low and decreasing, total bed utilization rate, and intensive care unit utilization rate is low.

 

Alert Level 2 – refers to areas wherein case transmission is low and decreasing, healthcare utilization is low, or case counts are low but increasing, or case counts are low and decreasing but total bed utilization rate and intensive care unit utilization rate is increasing.

 

Alert Level 3 – refers to areas wherein case counts are high and/or increasing, with total bed utilization rate and intensive care unit utilization rate at increasing utilization.

 

Alert Level 4 – refers to areas wherein case counts are high and/or increasing, with total bed utilization rate and intensive care unit utilization rate at high utilization.

 

Alert Level 5 – refers to areas wherein case counts are alarming, with total bed utilization rate and intensive care unit utilization rate at critical utilization.
