I really like this website evaluating transmission trends in every state. The goal is for the line to drop below 1. We've made progress but aren't there yet. 1/ 

These analyses will be critical to assess how we're doing in controlling the outbreak, especially when we do begin to lift some physical distancing measures 2/

But they aren't a live transmission ticker. Any changes we make will not show up in these data for a few weeks. It's another tool in our toolbox, but expert assessment and caution will still be important. 3/3
