UVA COVID-19 Modeling Weekly Update

Key Takeaways

  • Omicron is causing an unprecedented number of cases and placing severe strain on Virginia’s hospitals, doctors, and nurses.
  • Confirmed case growth is slowing or declining in some states and in some regions of Virginia. While promising, difficulties with case ascertainment make these trends difficult to confirm.
  • While the Omicron surge is likely to peak statewide soon, case levels will remain high for several weeks after the peak, and rural areas may be affected later.
  • Vaccination is the best protection against severe disease, and death. Get vaccinated and boosted when eligible.
  • The Governor’s Office has announced its COVID-19 Action Plan.
