    Tested positive looks “better” which I feel wrong stating it that way but the people who have died in 1 day is terrible!I’m going to hate to see the numbers after these 2 holidays coming up.

    Numbers will go up through the roof due to all the idiots who live in our community who continue to have Christmas parties, New Years Eve parties and continue to travel!  People get your head out of the sand like an ostrich and wake up to the reality of the danger of COVID-19!  We will see an increase in numbers around the second week in January, I assume.

Sorry, comment time is over.
