We introduced you to the People's CDC this past summer, but I thought it might be time to revisit their work and share their latest "COVID-19 Weather Report." People's CDC releases weekly reports to provide COVID-19 guidance for folks who want accurate data about COVID-19 risks. Here's their report for the week of December 12, which reads, in part:
Transmission levels have risen again, with nearly the entire population (98.38 percent) currently living in areas with substantial or higher transmission – compared to 93.3 percent last week. These are extremely high levels before winter officially arrives next week.

The People's CDC is a coalition of public health practitioners, scientists, healthcare workers, educators, advocates and people from all walks of life working to reduce the harmful impacts of COVID-19.
We provide guidance and policy recommendations to governments and the public on COVID-19, disseminating evidence-based updates that are grounded in equity, public health principles, and the latest scientific literature.
Working alongside community organizations, we are building collective power and centering equity as we work together to end the pandemic.
The People's CDC is volunteer-run and independent of partisan political and corporate interests and includes anonymous local health department and other government employees. The People's CDC is completely volunteer run with infrastructure support being provided by The University of Orange.
