Here is this week's report. I have cleaned up some explanations differentiating between very recent history as opposed to current trends that had caused some confusion. Grant County cases have started to rise, and Silver City similarly; the recent workplace employee data may be a factor. NM cases seem to be falling, and the USA cases are rising. The Omicron summary page is cleaned up, of course it is still early days. Omicron is in AZ, CO, TX, and NM. Please continue to be very careful over the next couple of weeks.
