- Case rates across Virginia continue to fall, and most health districts are in “Decline”, with zero districts in “Surge” this week.
- Overall case rates remain high, and the risk of infection is still significant. We may have made it over the crest of the Delta wave, but we still have a long way to go.
- Hospitalizations and deaths typically lag reported cases, and we may still see small increases in both in the next few weeks.
- Models predict a continued slow decline, but the possibility for another surge caused by winter weather and travel remains.
