The state has moved into a new phase of managing the pandemic when the color-coded dial was retired on April 16 and local jurisdictions assumed most of the responsibility for setting rules or reopening their economies. Cases however in the "fourth wave" have stayed persistently high and the state’s positivity rate is above the 5 percent level public health leaders watch closely.
Note: The governor's briefings don't always start on time.
