With the daily state update I updated the graphs for the four ND counties in the ND MSAs.
The state update 10/21/20 includes data up through 10/20/20 and so I updated the positivity graphs. The moving average continues to move up.
I isolated the ND counties associated with metropolitan areas in the state to investigate positivity there.
I broke out the moving averages by county to get a disaggregated picture of the situation. Significant variations across counties could indicate a need for differential policy treatments.
The state updates the positivity data daily at around 11, so to the extent my schedule allows I will update in the afternoon. Here are the updated graphs for data released 10-20-2020.
