Case Data for August 29, 2020

Here’s the WVBI Summary Grid with data for the 29th.

Our grid reports daily data released by state health officials for the entire state, our region (Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau and Otsego Counties), The Traverse City Safe Start Zone (Region 6 as defined by the state) and the Upper Peninsula (Region 8 as defined by the state).

NOTE: State health officials define active cases as confirmed cases older than 30 days where the subject remains alive.  Estimated Active Cases in this chart are calculated by subtracting the number of cases extant 30 days prior to the current date.  The impact of deaths is not included because data released by the state doesn’t tie deaths to the date of onset.  As a result, the calculated numbers may be assumed to slightly overstate the number of active cases as defined by the state.
