Case Update: November 19th, 2020

This is a case update. The US continues to see a large spike in new cases during a 3rd wave. New cases appear to be centered in the northern states and around the Great Lakes, but more southern states are now experiencing new cases as well. The county with the highest new cases right now is Cook County, the home of Chicago. New confirmed cases in the US are now double what they were during the second wave. This is all likely being driven by colder weather causing people to gather indoors.

San Diego County’s 3rd appears substantially higher than the 2nd wave. County Health reports that most known outbreaks are occurring in restaurants, especially those with bars, with the second most being businesses. The County is not reporting to the public what kind of businesses are experiencing outbreaks.

Don’t fear, but be smart,
