Yesterday, it was reported that the countdown of sustained decrease in community spread of COVID-19 had paused while the data was under review. DC Health has confirmed that based on current available data, a new peak was detected in the data (as of May 29), resetting the District's Phase One count. The count resets at the beginning of each new Phase, so that day became Day 0. Therefore, the District has experienced one day of sustained decrease in community spread based on data through May 30.
