Introduction:

Goal of the Metropolitan Strategy

This strategy aims to slow transmission of the novel coronavirus and interrupt its spread. In metropolitan areas where cases are increasing, this strategy should delay and reduce the peak number of cases. In metropolitan areas where case numbers may be stable or declining, this strategy should accelerate the decline, creating more opportunities for decisions to relax social distancing policies.

The recommendations will require significant resources for implementation. Metropolitan areas should consider establishing public-private partnerships to coordinate and support this work.
