• This report includes an adjustment to our total case numbers, as we have been conducting case investigations to correct reported cases that were duplicates/previously reported, out-of-county records, or people who were previously counted but later turned out to not be a case.
• The above graphic shows how quickly one person can spread COVID-19, even if they just have close contact with a few people. We must wear masks and keep our distance, even with people we know well.
• This pandemic has altered our way of life and we have all made sacrifices, which has helped slow the spread of COVID-19 in our state. Many of us feel exhausted, fatigued or impatient, but cases continue to increase, so we must work together to stay the course. There are ways to continue to do many of the things we love, but modify them to reduce risk for ourselves and those around us.
• Businesses and employers should promote alternative worksite options, such as teleworking, where possible, to reduce exposures to COVID-19. Where telework options are not feasible, worker safety measures should continue to be scaled up to reduce possible worksite exposures.
