This presentation will provide a new methodology, a new metric, that can be useful for determining the thresholds to be followed in human service settings to prevent the spread of the COVID19 infection. This new metric, “Contact Hours,” takes into account the number of clients in a setting, the number of staff, the exposure time, and the available space. Contact hours are more effective than just using group size in determining the appropriate thresholds. It has the potential to provide the empirical base we have been lacking in our public policies related to COVID19 and for future pandemics.
