Daily Status, Sept. 11

Daily Status, Sept. 11 Reminder:  any sections that are unchanged since yesterday are grayed out. This something we all need to read to protect ourselves .  I will probably write about it soon. Summary/Situational Awareness It looks like some colleges are either getting a handle on the virus or achieved herd immunity: Radford and VCU are stable now.  Unfortunately, the outbreak at JMU continues to spread; only about half the students returned home. And VT is spiraling out of control;  UVA could be next.  Across the commonwealth of Virginia, there were 1115 reported new cases of COVID-19.  The number higher than the recent trends; it is about 1 standard deviation above the mean.     Overall, cases are essentially flat for the last three weeks.  It is worth noting that, over over that time, 14% of the positives have been from colleges; today,  colleges account for 20% (223) of the cases are directly related to college; without the college cases, the numbers would be decreasing by 1%/day
