ANALYSIS & COMMENTS

📌 Be cautious with charts that include an average of daily tests. The large backlog earlier in the week is making rolling averages look much larger than they are. I am going to work to update that.

📌Cases are declining compared to last week; however, so are tests.

📌Hospitalizations continue to decline in most regions and statewide.
