Ashland County - April 22, 2021

Effective Reproduction Number (Rt)

Rt appears to have remained below 1.0 for the past 6 weeks.


Projected Incidence

Case numbers are expected to trend downward in the coming 2 weeks, though there is some uncertainty given the small population size of the county.  Continued masking and social distancing will be critical to preventing increases.


Asymptomatic to Symptomatic Ratio

The ratio of asymptomatic to symptomatic cases appears to have remained consistently low over the last 6 weeks.  A low ratio of asymptomatic to symptomatic cases facilitates mitigation efforts since symptomatic individuals usually isolate.
