The state, in its reopening plan, detailed key metrics it is following to determine whether it’s safe to gradually loosen restrictions intended to slow the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

The charts below show the trends in several measures cited by officials as key to moving the state through the multi-phase reopening plan. The officials have warned that if the trends in these charts show the virus spreading again, the state could have to step back a phase, or certain sectors of the economy could be closed.
