Tuesday’s in-person update comes after Hinshaw announced last Friday she would no longer hold daily in-person COVID-19 updates. This week, Hinshaw plans to address the media in person with updates on Tuesday and Thursday. The daily COVID-19 case numbers will still be released online on Wednesday, Friday and over the weekend.
