California Goes Endemic 

California became the first state to officially move to an endemic phase of its approach to COVID-19, an announcement marking a shift from a mandate- and restrictions-based approach to one that emphasizes prevention and testing. The state, which has implemented some of the strictest pandemic-era procedures, has seen its case rate drop below that of last year’s delta variant surge. 

The decision is somewhat arbitrary—pandemic refers to a virus whose spread has reached wide-scale, while endemic signals that a disease is expected to continue circulating among a population at low levels for the foreseeable future. Chickenpox and malaria are examples of endemic diseases. 

In related news, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for the disease. The 95-year-old monarch is said to be experiencing mild symptoms. 

Separately, the US is averaging just over 100,000 new COVID-19 cases per day (see data), down roughly 85% since mid-January. Daily reported deaths have fallen to 2,170, a drop of about 15% over the same time period.
