Weekly Butler County COVID-19 Report
Transmission trends resumed increasing this week in Butler County. Incoming data from the previous week also showed that what was might have been a stall in transmission was due to a lag in reporting as those numbers jumped substantially.

Week-to-week cases jumped by approximately 12% and positivity rate also increased. Testing volume jumped dramatically as well.  Expect to see a continued rise as cases from the holiday weekend get reported. 

The first May death within Butler County was officially tallied this week. Hospitalizations increased too by slightly under 40% from the average over the course of the previous 4 weeks.
