This report is revised simply to make the town weekly case charts become daily case charts to be consistent with the state and county charts daily case charts; as a result, the Y axis changed. 

This week's report has the addition of raw data on many graphs in addition to smoothed data. Also, the hospital data is more relevant and helpful, and shows comparisons for our state as well as our neighboring states. Things could look more positive since daily cases have continued unabated and positivities show rises also. There is some indication that daily case times to double is perhaps showing non exponential growth is some areas. that is helpful. Christmas and New Year may not have helped, and missing three days of data two weeks in a row also may have skewed numbers a bit; that is why I added raw data side by side in some graphs in order to add perspective.
