  • Since the end of August, daily hospitalizations (currently admitted COVID patients) in the County have been consistently in the 30’s/day and occasionally lowering into the 20’s/day. Hospitals, beginning in early October, have been reporting an increase in the daily hospitalization census. Below is a chart that focuses on daily data from August 1 to the present overlaying a 3-day trending line.

  • Because of the increasing trend in Hospitalizations, the below table is developed to track the total “newly admitted and positive after admission COVID patients in the last 24 hours”. The data presented details daily data drawn from August 1 to the present with a 3-pay trend line. An increasing trend appears to be occurring.
