April 6 Covid-19 Newsletter

Introduction 

Today I am kicking off a weekly newsletter to track the progress of Covid-19 in the southeast and provide useful information from the region and nation. This is an effort to keep you informed on what’s going on in each of the states in the southeast, as well as provide interesting articles, data, and good news to help break the monotony.

I have found many resources, but if you have any suggestions please let me know and I’ll do my best to include it in future posts. At heart, I’m a data nerd, so data is especially welcome!

Stay Safe!
