    Hospitalizations for covid are trending down after peaking in July.

    The link above does a nice job of showing hospitalization/icu trends for the state and each county of the state.

     

    The rate of transmission in Los Angeles county is now 0.84.  

    I don’t trust the computation of LA county public health but it’s been under 1 for a few days now, the longest consecutive streak since the county reported on this number daily starting in April or May
