  • On Nov. 12, state officials said they will no longer conduct contact tracing for every single case and instead will focus on certain populations.
  • On Oct. 2, health officials began adding antigen test results to the totals because the rapid tests are becoming more widely used. That resulted in an apparent spike in positive cases, as positive antigen tests from over the course of the pandemic were added. One additional death and five hospitalizations related to positive antigen tests were also added.
  • On Sept. 24, the governor said that all restaurants can move tables closer than 6 feet as long as there is a protective divider in place between tables.

  • On Aug. 11, the governor announced that masks would be required at all scheduled gatherings of 100 or more people.
  • On June 15, the stay-at-home order expired and was replaced by a safer-at-home advisory. A key difference is that the requirement that all groups must be fewer than 10 people is no longer in place.
  • On May 22, officials announced the state's first case of MIS-C in a child.
  • On March 23, officials announced the state's first death of a patient diagnosed with COVID-19.
