COVID-19 numbers in Colonial Heights are now trending in a bad direction as the rate of new cases per 100,000 has risen from 12.8 to 20.0 in three days.

Colonial Heights reported eight new cases on November 23rd. The 7-day average of four new cases a day, however that number will likely rise as the numbers in recent days have been rising each day.

A vaccine is expected to be available next month after several companies have announced that they successfully created one. We will update you later this week with information about the trends of COVID-19 in the city.
