The sustained drop in new infections seen through the early days of autumn has recently shown signs of plateauing. But even though cases are now well below the latest high points seen over the summer, certain states are still experiencing COVID surges of their own as winter approaches with its own set of renewed risks.

Over the past seven days, the national daily average of new COVID cases has mostly flatlined with a modest three percent drop to 22 per 100,000 people, according to The Washington Post as of Nov. 9. But while the most recent health data still shows progress, some officials are concerned that the return of colder weather and the travel associated with the holiday season could pose a new set of challenges.

"Certainly, things are going in the right direction with the diminution of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths," Anthony Fauci, MD, chief COVID adviser to the White Houe, said during an interview with NPR's Mary Louise Kelly on Nov. 8. "[But] the steepness of the deflection is not as good as it was, let's say, a month or so ago … it's down to a lower number."

Fortunately, Fauci pointed out that the recent approval to administer the vaccine in children between ages five and 11 is "something that's in our favor" to help stay ahead of the virus compared to last winter. "As we go into the winter months with the challenge of a respiratory infection being worse in the winter months, we can get through this if we really put a lot of effort into getting as many people vaccinated as we possibly can," he said.

Read on to see which states have experienced COVID surges of 20 percent or more over the past week as of Nov. 9, according to data from The Washington Post.

The latest uptick in COVID cases across Illinois came after 17,462 new infections were reported from Oct. 29 to Nov. 5. In a press conference, Allison Arwady, MD, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health, said that the return of cold weather could have played a role in the recent spike and that winter would likely see COVID cases rise again alongside the flu and colds.

  • New cases in the last seven days: 50 cases per 100,000 people
  • Percent increase in the last seven days: 62 percent
Despite having one of the highest vaccination rates of any state, Vermont has lately struggled with some of the highest COVID case numbers it has seen since the beginning of the pandemic. The latest reports have cited the return of cold weather and Halloween parties at a local university as some potential causes. But while a recent rise in hospitalizations has some worried that the state's healthcare system could become overrun, some local authorities point out that the situation has never become as dire as it has been in other states thanks to the high percentage of the population that has received their doses.

"We had as many or more patients at this point than we've ever had over the course of the last two years," Rick Hildebrant, MD, chief of hospital medicine at Rutland Regional Medical Center in Rutland, Vermont, told NPR. "But we have never seen the type of scenarios in other parts of the country, where the hospital systems have just been overwhelmed by COVID."
