Please note that the data that we provide on a daily basis is only a snapshot. When these snapshots are combined over time, it tells a better story of COVID-19 in our community. You may see low numbers reported in our daily case updates one day, and higher numbers the next. While low numbers are good any time we see them, we must continue to monitor the larger story and weekly case numbers to fully understand how well our current strategies are working to slow the spread of COVID-19.
