We have not turned the corner. No summary from the governor yet.
We looked at the COVID-19 vaccine shipment data and found Arkansas is getting about the same amount of vaccine per capita when compared to surrounding states. New from @haley_hale_ https://t.co/UxI2OVRf0T pic.twitter.com/pyBoBr231R

UPDATE: The governor emphasizes the positive:
Today’s report shows an increase in new cases from last week, but we still show a decrease in active cases from last week. Our vaccination efforts continue to progress, with over 15,600 additional doses administered yesterday. We have been trending in the right direction, and we all need to wear a mask, watch our distance, and wash our hands to ensure that trend continues.
