Brattleboro and VT COVID-19 Regional Dashboard Summary – July 2024

Here’s the July 2024 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.

VT, NH and MA do weekly updates, near the end of the week, so we update on Fridays usually. All three have changed their dashboards since the start, so it is now tough to easily compare how things have changed. Variant updates are every two weeks.

Here are links to the full list of dashboard summaries: June,  May,  April,  March, February, January 2024, December, November, October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February, January 2023, December, November, October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February, January 2022, December, November, October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February, January 2021, December, November, October, September, August, July, June, May, and April 2020.  47 months!

  • July 5, 2024 - numbers creeping back up again

    VT ( Wednesday updates)

    Note: As of April 30, 2024, hospitals are no longer required to report COVID-19 Hospital data. CDC strongly encourages hospitals to continue reporting these data, but following the May 1st COVID-19 Surveillance Report, the Department will no longer be providing updated Hospitalization Levels with our weekly report.

    Starting May 8th, the COVID-19 Surveillance Report will include additional indicators to provide current information on the impact of COVID-19 in Vermont.

    Report Timeframe: June 23 to June 29, 2024

    KP.2, KP.3, and LB.1 are the dominant circulating variants. Most specimen quantities are limited to
    less than ten per week starting the week of 4/7 which may impact proportion accuracy. (Sources:
    LabCorp, Quest, Helix, Health Department Whole Genome Sequencing program.)

    KP.3 is the dominant circulating variant in wastewater.. Samples from two wastewater sites, Bennington and Ludlow, are sequenced to estimate the proportion of circulating variants.

    Concentrations are generally low. Some week-to-week fluctuation is expected.
