Observations

The first graph below shows new cases (blue bars) and the 7-day average (red line). Of the 39 new cases reported today, 21 were confirmed yesterday and the remaining 18 were confirmed in previous days. The 7-day average of new cases per day peaked at 194 on April 1. The average for the last 7 days is now 54 new cases per day, up from 36 a week ago. The 7-day average has increased 49% in the last week and 32% in the last two weeks.

The key indicators that the State and County are using to make decisions about reopening include a measure of the total number of cases reported in the previous 14 days per 100K residents.  The target for this metric is less than 25.  The second and third graphs below show this metric.  The second graph goes back to March 12, the fourteenth day of reported cases.  The third graph provides a more detailed view of results in the last few weeks.  28.4 cases were reported per 100K residents during the 14-day period June 8 – June 21.
