It requires you to click around to get used to, but this Harvard site is really helpful in terms of visualizing covid risk levels state to state, county to county. For example, Vermont, where I live, has a 1.1 risk level (daily cases per 100K people, 7 day rolling average). My county has had 61 cases and 2 deaths, or 0.8 cases per 100,000 people. (Obviously, this is based on confirmed cases.) You can use it to look up what's going on anywhere in the US, along with its risk factor.
