Looking at the COVID numbers for my county and it shows good news and bad news. Good news is that the weekly reported cases is flat compared to this time last year. Bad news is that the infection rate, which is a leading indicator to the community numbers, is trending upward having been relatively level (up and down around 1) since August. It doesn’t look like we will reach the levels of new cases through the end of December and January like we did last year, but we clearly are getting the somewhat expected increases with the holidays and colder weather upon us.
