Nov 26: Turkey Day....Please be socially distanced. It is getting bad, and will continue to get worse.

  Daily Status, Nov 26 Today is a full update I would have updated yesterday, but there were issues with the state database.  Tomorrow may or may not have an update, as it is a chemo day (update will be written from the infusion center if it happens).  . Sat and Sun and Mon, I expect to be too tired from the chemo to update.   Reminder:  Any sections that are unchanged since yesterday are grayed out.   I try to update every day between 11:00 and 12:00; however, because my updates are based on when the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) updates, it takes some time to analyze and collate the data. In addition, because I have my own health issues, there will be days when the update is late or is not published at all.     The one thing to remember is that the day-to-day changes are minor. Any trend takes several days to identify and I will be looking at the data daily (that is easy) but may not update the blog.   Situational Awareness   Big picture: The fall surge continues to accelerate.

Nov 23: If you are worried about COVID impacts, it is time to hunker down.

Situational Awareness   Big picture: The fall surge is accelerating.  There is no way to sugar coat it.  If you have any risk factors for complications, NOW IS THE TIME TO BE CAREFUL!  Those include age (60+), diabetes, heart disease, cancer, kidney disease, compromised immune system.  Please, even if don’t, wear a mask to protect those that do.  And if you d
