  1. Need to get deeper and track by zip code within the county. I tracked Baltimore county and found that 12 zip codes account for 71% cases. Thzt is were they need to focus their compliance. If I had more data. You could even go deeper.

  2. Also, this doesn’t go further into the details of testing. I saw lines wrapping around the block by Symphony Woods Park testing center from 18-21 NOV. I haven’t seen that many cars for testing since testing became available. There were cars lined up before the testing center was open on the 21st. With holiday season coming up and some airlines requiring COVID testing before flights, there could be more people getting tested in order to fly. Just saying there is data missing to say that this indicates a “spike”. Maybe a spike in the number of tests. Anyways, everyone please be safe and make smart decisions even if they’re the hard ones..
