Recovery Patterns

This chart displays a rolling weekly average of the selected metric. The normalized visits by total visits for a given week during the pandemic is divided by the normalized visits by total visits for the corresponding week pre-pandemic. Weeks are considered to correspond with one another if their ISO week number matches.
