Ed. Note: Yesterday there were 13,639 total positives.

From the Mayor’s Office:

“The District’s reported data for Monday, August 24, 2020 includes 45 new positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, bringing the District’s overall positive case total to 13,684.

The District reported no additional COVID-19 related deaths.

Tragically, 604 District residents have lost their lives due to COVID-19.

The community spread chart is subject to fluctuation because the data is based on symptom onset date. As national demand for testing increases and results take longer to come back in DC and across the country, DC Health has identified a need to increase the reporting lag time by four days to reduce volatility in the data. The most recent data reflects an increase in community spread. To ensure this graph accurately reflects the most recent data, the community spread count is being paused as these adjustments are made.”

The District’s data shows that 7.0% of new COVID-19 cases are from quarantined contacts. That data is represented in the chart below.

The District’s data shows a sustained transmission rate of 0.89. That data is represented in the chart below.

The District’s seven-day average positivity rate among residents is 2.6%. That data is represented in the chart below.

Thanks to Anthony for sending this great shot from Dupont Circle. Look at the size of that thing:

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
