COVID-19 modeling takes one-week hiatus
State public health officials will not produce a weekly update of COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates this week. Health experts want to allow a week to gather additional data on coronavirus infections following the state’s approval of 31 counties to begin limited reopening. The next modeling update will be published late next week (the week of May 24). You can see the most recent COVID-19 projections under the "Additional Data and Projections" drop-down box on the OHA COVID-19 webpage.
