Risk is down 25% from last week, and all our data indicate that the season has begun to draw to a close. However, we expect that around 3 counties will report cases this week, and around 1 in 5 cases are yet to be transmitted. This means that risk is still very real for individuals, even though the majority of 2018's infections have occurred already. Personal protection and limiting exposure to the mosquito are now far more important than widespread interventions, although some large Fall events (such as football games) might still warrant attention from public health officials.
