Yesterday’s COVID-19 report from the state covered two days and continued to show good trends.  There were 633 new cases a day on average and four deaths a day on average—those are statewide numbers. Seven-day running average for new cases is down to 867. For deaths, the average is 36 a day with reclassifications included. In the eight-county region we’ve followed from the start, there were an average of 8 new cases a day over the two-day period and no deaths overall. Charlevoix had no new cases total. Seven day running averages for our region are 17 new cases a day and no deaths.

There’s been no update to positivity rates shown on the state’s Safe Start dashboard, but they look good where they stand. Statewide rate is at 3.9%.  It’s 4.1% in our safe start zone. And the rate in Charlevoix county is 1.9%. The C-D-C target is 3% or less.  New case per million rates are on a steady slope down.
