BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - After Memorial Day, most areas saw an uptick in new COVID-19 cases within 9-16 days. Public health officials say the case lag is about two weeks after an event or holiday that might have contributed to the virus’s spread.

So, did areas see the same two-week uptick in new cases after the Labor Day holiday weekend?

Nationwide, the answer is yes. Across the state of Texas, the same is also true, though at a less steep angle.
