The latest update of the UVA COVID-19 model is out, and it’s not great. Happy Thanksgiving? Hmmm…

  • “Cases are surging nationally. More than 1 million cases were reported in the US over the last 7 days according to the CDC.”
  • “Nationally, incidence almost doubled over the past two weeks.”
  • “In Virginia incidence is growing more slowly, but steadily.”
  • “Surges in populous Fairfax and Loudoun, and slow growth in other metro areas, portend rapid case growth statewide.”
  • “Statewide, the reproduction rate has been above 1.0 since late September. It remains above 1.0 in most regions as well.”
  • “Virginians should take extra precautions over Thanksgiving, including avoiding travel, indoor gatherings, and visiting persons at high risk, and isolating before or after any risky holiday activities.”
