Here’s each state’s status in regard to the White House exit strategy for COVID-19

The spread in the states

Using criteria provided by the White House, analysts at Covidexitstrategy.org are tracking each state’s progress in reducing symptoms and case numbers and conducting testing.

The group of public health and crisis experts includes members from the U.S. Digital Response and Duke University’s Margolis Center for Health Policy and has built the website to track each state’s progress toward stopping the spread of COVID-19.

The group says a downward trajectory of illness reported and of documented cases is critical. So far, not many states have a downward trend, but several are getting close.

By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Matthew Perrone | The Associated Press

Once a coronavirus vaccine is approved as safe and effective, Americans should have widespread access within a reasonable time, Dr. Anthony Fauci assured lawmakers Friday.

Appearing before a House panel investigating the nation’s response to the pandemic, Fauci expressed “cautious” optimism that a vaccine would be available, particularly by next year.

“I believe, ultimately, over a period of time in 2021, that Americans will be able to get it,” Fauci said, referring to the vaccine.

There will be a priority list for who gets early vaccinations. “I don’t think we will have everybody getting it immediately,” Fauci explained.

Dam Fire above Azusa, which has rolled through more than 200 acres, is 40 percent contained

A brush fire in the Angeles National Forest was 40 percent contained Friday morning after gobbling up more than 200 acres.

No one had been injured, and no structures were damaged, said Andrew Mitchell, a spokesman for the Angeles National Forest.

Dubbed the Dam Fire, the blaze had burned 217 acres. The U.S. Forest Service adjusted the number of acres burned after a plane with an infrared camera flew over the fire last night for an accurate asessment, Mitchell said.

Containment is the percentage of the perimeter where firefighters believe the fire will no longer expand.

There were 307 firefighters battling the fire, which was heading northwest and moving away from Azusa.

“The concern today is the heat and the humidity,” he added.

Temperatures are expected to hit the 90s and 100s, acco...
