Test Positivity Rate - St. Louis County
The percent positive is exactly what it sounds like: the percentage of all coronavirus tests performed that are positive. When the test positivity rate is low, it is an indication that there is sufficient testing happening to help curtail the spread of the virus in the community. If the positivity rate is too high, that may indicate that the community is only testing the sickest individuals.
- Red: more than 10 percent positive tests
- Yellow: less than 10 percent and more than five percent positive tests
- Green: less than five percent positive tests
