  1. Thanks for collecting the data. With the State continually adding new data, it makes comparisons difficult (for example, the influx of new tests on 9/12 and 9/13 from onboarding facilities skewed the positive rate low, but that’s likely because many of the tests came from June–when our positivity rates were really low). But, patterns are emerging. And, today’s positivity rate was 8.86%, which is lower than what it has been since the last week of August – which may be a good sign overall, especially after Labor Day.
