Case updates August 24, 2020

The State Department of Health is changing its reporting on testing and will now be reporting the number of total tests given.

Previously they were reporting the number of people tested. They feel that it gives them better data to work with.

The number of tests they are reporting for the state: 1,380,104

Down here at the ground level, while I certainly approve of vulnerable people like medical workers being tested frequently, I don't feel it adds to our understanding of what is happening in our communities, so I will not be reporting on number of tests given. - Editor
