Statewide reported daily tests reached a near-record of 9782 yesterday, with a near record daily low of 8% positive. Both of those numbers are impressive in a good way. Additionally, the trends in those numbers continue to move in a direction that indicates a reduction in infection spread.

Unfortunately, the trend in deaths is leveling off. The reason appears to be deaths from long term care facilities. The recent increase in percent of deaths from those facilities tell the tale. Although those deaths accounted for 59.2% of all deaths throughout this event, they represent 68% of all deaths reported in the past five days.
