There are to COVID tracking sites I follow every day. They both have color coded maps that show how each state is doing according to their metrics.
Connecticut is not doing as well as it has in the past. Our dailey cases and test positivity rate have gone up and stayed there over the last couple weeks. Much of this is likley attributable to the influx of college students into the state as well as local grade and high school students going back to school.
Daily coronavirus updates: Higher positivity looks like new normal as metrics flatten; Sacred Heart president says students could be sent home; U.S. reaches 200,000 coronavirus deaths.
The EMS system here hasn’t felt any real uptick yet. I don’t know if it is just a matter of time or maybe because the increase in cases is largely attributable to younger people, we are not seeing and may not see the devastation we saw in the spring in our nursing homes, prison, and group homes.
Let’s hope so.
Keep wearing your masks.
