Note: Daily COVID-19 updates going forward will only happen when something significant needs to be reported during the week. Weekly weekend charts will continue to happen on Saturday or Sunday and will be specific to new data points I am developing in 2021. Monthly charts will happen around the 1st of each month (or as quickly as I can given my schedule).
