Know Your Community COVID Level: COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. Find your community COVID level here.

COVID - 19 Data

Benton County 2020, 2021 & 2022 Comparison Graphs
These graphs show you the comparison of Benton County COVID-19 cases between the years of 2020, 2021, and 2022 (youth are identified in the top graph; adults are identified in the bottom graph). The white boxes indicate the previous year compared at the current time. These graphs show you the importance of continued mitigation strategies. The current mitigation strategies include masking, social distancing, washing hands, covering your cough, staying home when you are not feeling well, following current guidelines around isolation and quarantine, getting a COVID-19 test when needed and getting the COVID-19 vaccine and booster when you are able. 

While earlier variants of COVID-19 were affecting adults more seriously, more studies are showing that youth are making up a higher percentage of cases due to the more recent dominant variants. All youth under 5 years are still not eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. For the health and safety of all we recommend continuing to practice the mitigation strategies mentioned above.

These graphs are typically updated on a weekly basis. The graphs below were added to our website on 5/23/2022. The data is current through 5/12/2022.
