February 24, 2023 • 3:16 pm CST
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today there are 2.1% of counties, districts, or territories in the U.S. with a high COVID-19 Community Level.
As of February 23, 2023, the 7-day average for new daily cases, 33,722, decreased by 9.2% from a week ago.
As the COVID-19 pandemic fades from national headlines, the CDC noted that it would produce data every other week beginning in early March 2023.
A few weeks ago, the U.S. federal government announced plans to end the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on May 11, 2023.
However, until then, COVID-19 remains a public health priority.
