For deaths, the average is 15 a day—with reclassifications backed out. In the eight-county region we’ve followed from the start, there were 19 new cases and one death. Charlevoix had a case removed. The single death was in Grand Traverse.  Seven day running averages for our region are 22 new cases a day and one death.

The rate in Charlevoix county is down three tenths to 1.5%. The C-D-C target is 3% or less.  New case per million rates are on a steady slope down.
