** "Total that should be insolated" is our best estimate of the number of people who would be in isolation under the CDC's 10-day isolation requirement in place prior to December 26. Current CDC policy states that anyone testing positive is required to isolate for just five days.

** Publisher's Note / January 6: After careful consideration of the data used to determine these figures appear to be inaccurate. The Sentinel is modifying the methodology used to determine the number of individuals that would be in isolation under the CDC guidelines prior to December 27, 2021.
