Brattleboro and VT COVID-19 Regional Dashboard Summary – September 2022

It is time for the September 2022 dashboard summary. We continue semi-regular COVID-19 dashboard numbers from the Vermont Department of Health, and MA and NH counties that surround Brattleboro, as long as they continue providing them.  Scroll down the new comments for the latest.

Vermont and MA have very limited looks at what are going on these days, with weekly snapshots. NH attempt daily updates but doesn’t always give new totals. We try…. : )

Here are links to the full list of dashboard summaries: August,  July,  June,  May,  April,  March,  February,  January 2022,  December,  NovemberOctober,  September, AugustJulyJuneMayAprilMarchFebruaryJanuary 2021, December,  November,  OctoberSeptemberAugustJuly,  JuneMay, and April 2020.  29 months!
