Seneca County - April 8, 2021

Effective Reproduction Number (Rt)

Rt appears to have remained below 1.0 since early March.

Projected Incidence

Case numbers are expected to decrease minimally in the coming 2 weeks, but there is some uncertainty given sporadic patterns of reported cases in the county and small population size.  Continued masking and social distancing will be critical to preventing increases.

Asymptomatic to Symptomatic Ratio

The ratio of asymptomatic to symptomatic cases remains low.  A low ratio of asymptomatic to symptomatic cases facilitates mitigation efforts since symptomatic individuals usually isolate.
