If you’ve seen the movie This is Spinal Tap – you know what this post’s title means: the rock band’s amplifiers were louder than others because their volume controls went to 11 while other bands only went to 10!
Colorado just adopted the Spinal Tap solution to Covid-19 – they’ve added a sixth color-coded Status Dial level – purple!
A sixth level, Level Purple: Extreme Risk, will be added to the dial, representing when hospital capacity risks being breached and most businesses and indoor services must be closed.https://web.archive.org/web/20201118005015/https://covid19.colorado.gov/press-release/several-counties-move-to-level-red-on-state-dial
Fortunately, “experts” think the human brain can discriminate up to 100,000 (or some think millions) of different colors. Colorado has plenty of color choices left to add more levels to their Status Dial.
