COVID mortality drops below “epidemic” threshold

I can’t find any local or national reporting on this, but this past week we (the USA) dropped below the CDC’s threshold to be classified as being in an “epidemic” based on mortality data from their own website. We dropped below that threshold for one week back in July, and since then, the CDC has been less than forthcoming about the percentage of Covid deaths in regards to the epidemic threshold in their weekly Covid report.

Why can’t they be transparent about simple data and mathematics? Isn’t it a good thing if we’re finally below the epidemic threshold?
