Daily Dose : A Reprieve



Good Morning

Good news to start our midweek daily dose with a dip in the number of cases reported. Let's dive in.



1) 528 Cases, lowest in a week

Work Permit Dorms: 511
Community cases: 17
10 Spore/PR/WP, 7 Work Permit outside dorms

Looks like the numbers are coming down. If it keeps up for the next few days, we would be in a great spot. The total community cases had dropped from the 40s to 17. Work Permit cases outside of Dorms has also dropped significantly. The Dorms numbers are also looking good.

However, for the latter, we have to be cautious as the majority of testing now shift to dorms with lesser infection rate to prevent clusters. There might be a spike in the following days if Dorms with high infection rates are added to the test cycles.
