UVA COVID-19 Modeling Weekly Update

Key Takeaways

  • COVID19 cases continue to rise at a steady pace across the Commonwealth, with 26 of 35 Health Districts in “surge”.
  • Although still surging in most of the state, cases are beginning to plateau, led by slowing or even declining cases in some populous areas of the state.
  • Modeling indicates that in the short-term, mask-usage and social distancing is the most effective countermeasure against Delta in the short term.
  • A repeat of surges seen last September and over the holidays could lead to higher peaks, or sustained high case levels. Increased vaccinations could prevent tens of thousands of winter cases.
