Williams County - April 8, 2021

Effective Reproduction Number (Rt)

Rt appears to remain at or below 1.0 despite a rise during the second half of March.

Projected Incidence

A gradual decrease in cases seems likely, though there is considerable 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 has slightly increased for the past 2-3 weeks.  A low ratio of asymptomatic to symptomatic cases facilitates mitigation efforts since symptomatic individuals usually isolate.
