The two charts above show the number of new positive cases over the past 14 days. The number of cases has declined by 472 in comparison to the previous 14 days. While the state has abandoned the formula of needing to have an average of no more than 30 cases per day over 14-days to reach the yellow phase of reopening, the charts show that Montgomery County is 3.6 cases off that original benchmark.
