As always, it's important to define terms for those who don't know . . .
A positivity rate is the percentage of people who test positive out of all of the tests done. The higher the positivity rate is, the more concerning it is . . . The (controversial) World Health Organization set 5% as the threshold for "too high" for COVID-19. KMOV reminds us: The higher the number, the more it indicates community spread, the need for more testing and the stricter restrictions become. A low positivity rate means there's more control over the virus and the lesser need for rules.
