My Notes:

Overall the numbers continue to trend in the right direction. The continued drops in new cases, positivity rate and people currently in the hospital are encouraging.

A couple of items I am watching:

  • Deaths due to COVID-19 have not seen the decreases yet. This is a trailing indicator and I expect (or at least very much hope) that these numbers will soon begin to decrease.
  • COVID-19 Vaccinations – A significant rise at the state level but the number of vaccines administered in Howard County and Carroll County have decreased. Hopefully with the wide spread access to vaccines now we see these numbers begin to increase.
