Update on Positives
Overall, we have seen 272 positive tests with 3,392 negative tests. We have seen 9 positive tests in the last week.
State Exposure Notification App
The state is launching an exposure notification app. All Android and Apple users will receive a notification on Sunday. Even a small uptake of the app in our community can positively impact our outcomes. While alone it won’t be a game changer, combined with our other tools- social distancing, masks, hand hygiene- we can continue to reduce the spread.
We found this newscast on vaccines to be very informative. If you would like some more info, check it out here.

Importance of Self-Reporting
One of the best tools to provide early warnings of spread in the community is to self-report as symptomatic. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, even if they are mild, please self-report and isolate yourself.
