    Can you tell me where to find the weekly state wide number of deaths from COVID-19?

      Here are the two I use:

      This one is the Dashboard for Overall State and Counties:

      This one is for the risk assessment (Per/100k) to see where the state and counties are for specific numbers required for reopening.

      I use the risk assessment more as specific businesses and youth sports have requirements to meet depending on their level of “opening”.  I’ll have to research why the total tests reduced by over 16,000.  That reduction appears to have increased the per/100k numbers, which is unsettling…depending on the cause of removing so many tests from the equation. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
