Minnesota cases were sharply lower last week, reflected at PA as well, where we’ve seen a downward trend for nearly a month now. As one Minnesota analyst remarked, “hopefully the lower reported cases truly reflect the start of a downward trend in the current surge of cases.”
And so we’ve made it to Christmas break, with much help and support from everybody. Thanks to all for a patient and sensible walk together through this fall, amid so much external noise. And thanks to sensible statisticians, data analysts, medical professionals, and other cool heads who have assisted by advising during this walk. It’s an honor to serve a community dedicated to the education, formation, and comprehensive wellbeing of children and families.
