U.S. Health Alert – COVID-19 Update

Updated: Jul 15

States are lifting (and in some cases, re-imposing) restrictions. Changes to guidelines and protocols occur frequently and restrictions vary greatly by state and locality. The US surpassed 3 million cases while the mortality rate is 4.3% of all known cases. Over 350,000 cases were reported in the last 7 days.


We are continuing to monitor spikes in cases that may be attributed to increases in testing and large-scale gatherings. Telework when possible, social distancing, eliminating non-essential travel, and applying aggressive preventive measures all contribute to lessening the spread of the virus. We strongly encourage everyone to proactively plan and prepare for continuing changes in guidelines. We are available to assist as necessary.

Notable Statistics:

  • 38.8 million COVID-19 tests conducted in the US

  • 3,097,538 confirmed cases in the US – 356,735 new case than 1 July

  • 15,371 cases are currently considered critical – down from 15,935 on 1 July

  • 133,991 deaths in the US – 3,857 new deaths since 1 July

  • 1,355,524 recoveries in the US – 211,836 new reports since 1 July

  • NY accounts for 3.5% of cases worldwide (trending downward)

  • NY, CA & TX account for 30% of US cases

Even where shelter in place is not directed, we strongly recommend social distancing, along with aggressive hygiene and eliminate all unnecessary interactions with others to reduce the spread, including wearing a mask where social distancing cannot be maintained
