Score matrices for the holiday to regular period comparison. Country-specific matrices of scores associated to the ratios of age-specific close-contact rates when comparing holiday to regular periods. The scores are based on the 95% bootstrap based confidence intervals where red indicates that the ratio is significantly lower than 1 (i.e. less contacts during the holiday period), orange not-significantly different from 1 (i.e. similar numbers of contacts on regular and holiday period) and yellow significantly higher than 1 (i.e. more contacts during the holiday period). The matrices are only shown for those countries for which the relative reproduction number is significantly different from 1.
