This is good news, but we will lose our hard work quickly if we don’t keep it up! Keep it small when it comes to Labor Day plans and other gatherings. It’s one way you can show you care and help to drive our COVID-19 rates down.
Fewer people seek testing and labs have lower staffing levels on weekends. Sometimes numbers in the early part of the week are low because of this.
The 20-39 age group has the highest number of COVID-19 cases at 39.9% in the last two weeks.
