Please note: 6 of the 22 deaths being reported today occurred prior to Dec. 21. Because the Office of the Medical Examiner takes great care to ensure cases reported as COVID deaths are actually due to COVID; through medical records review and sometimes an autopsy, there can be a delay in final determinations. ***
